All-American Grilled Steak

There's no need to use one of the low-carb ketchups in this marinade. One-fourth cup regular ketchup has 14 grams of carbohydrate, which means that ketchup contributes about 2 grams of carbohydrate per serving in this recipe. The sweetness of the ketchup is balanced by the dry wine, vinegar, and mustard.
