Portabella Steak Marinade

I just made an amazing portabella steak sandwich with the following marinade. I'm breaking up the ingredients into necessities and optionals, because i really just threw a bunch of stuff together. I'm not going to give exact measurements, because it'll be different depending on how many steaks (i marinated 5). here goes:

< Necessities

 Half a bottle of Snuffy's HOT BBQ Sauce (this is probably available to any vegans who shop at a wegmans, especially in WNY...substitute a favorite BBQ sauce of your choice)

 2 pours of soy sauce (not too much)

brown mustard
garlic powder or fresh garlic
cayenne peper
vegetable or olive or canola oil
some kind of sugary substance (brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup, corn syrup)

bread crumbs or wheat germ


two scoops of hoisin sauce
balsamic vinegar
sesame seeds
tobasco or other kind of hot sauce (depends on how hot you like it)

Let marinated steaks sit in refrigerator for 24 hours

If you fry them, use 2 tablespoons of willow run, chop up some onions and red peppers and put them in when the pan is really hot. Let them fry up to almost carmelizing, then add steaks and fry for about 10 minutes at high heat. Once you start to see the BBQ sauce burning onto the steaks a little, then remove them and serve on wheat bun.

Just use your good judgement with the ingredients, keeping in mind that the most important (and most abundant) ingredients in the marinade should be the BBQ sauce, oil, and whatever sugar substance you are using. Make sure those aren't the only ingredients tho......cuz then it would be super boring.
