Steak or Chicken Marinade

I love my parents steaks and chicken that they grill!  They always turn out so tender and juicy!  They use a special marinade on them and I thought I would share it with all of you.  Hope you love it too!
What you need:
1 cup vegetable oil
1 medium onion
1 tbs. garlic, diced
1 tbs. fresh sage, diced
2 tbs. worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp. fresh rosemary, crushed
1 tbs. freshly ground black pepper
2 tbs. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
Mix together and pour over steak or chicken and let marinade for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.  Do not over marinade the chicken, otherwise it will toughen the meat.  It's best not to marinade chicken for more than 8 hours. 
A note about grilling steak or chicken, let the meat come to room temperature.  It is easy to over cook the outside of meat and still have an undercooked center if you pull your meat directly out of the fridge or freezer and throw it on the grill.  The whole goal of grilling is to have a flavorful, moist and tender meat when you are done.
