What are the basic ingredients of a marinade? I got some Chuck Eye Steaks at WM for $1.31/lb. They are very tender, but not so flavorful. I'd like to try a marinade with say garlic and onion, but don't want to pay $2 or more for a bottle at the store since I probably already have everything in the cupboard.
