Place steaks in bag with marinade; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator for 6 hours to overnight.

  2. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 7 to 12 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered 8 to 12 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.
