Marinades

I was wondering how any of our JUDDD BUDD's count marinades...

We have this Beef recipe that you marinade then grill... goes something like this
Soy Sauce 1/2 cup??
Garlic 2-3 cloves
Lemon Juice
Dry Mustard Powder
Worstershire Sauce 1/4 cup
black and red pepper to taste

couple T of oil- optional, but was used this time.

The roast is VERY lean Sirloin Tip I count that at 50 calories/oz.
4lb roast...
Any ideas on how to count the marinade?

1/2 cup soy sauce
3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

Wasn't sure hot you measured some of the ingreds, so I guessed.
Came up with (for the whole batch):

401 Calories; 28g Fat (60.2% calories from fat); 10g Protein;
32g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 8820mg Sodium

What I do is- and it may be too late for you- is I measure the marinade before
I put the meat in, then measure what is left after I grill the meat (in case I use
some for basting, or whatever). If I've used 10% of it at that point, I'd add 40
calories to the meat calories. I'm sure there's another way, but at least this is EASY

I had thought of doing the measuring... my thoughts on this are
1-the meat has juices that may or may not be transferred...
2-how much of the marinade (especially the oil) gets inside 1/2in of the meat??

pretty true that about 10% I think would be gone... 40 calories per 4 lb roast wouldn't be much at all!

I thought of these questions too, and I have justified my method thusly:

1-the meat has juices that may or may not be transferred
The juices are not going to be pure water, or fat, therefore, it won't be calorie-free, nor will it be 9 calories per gram. At most it's 4 calories per gram, and probably less, because it is partly water. I figure any juice out of the meat will displace any marinade into the meat, for the same or similar calories. Not scientific, and probably not incredibly accurate, but I'm losing, so I'm not WAY off-base.

2-how much of the marinade (especially the oil) gets inside 1/2in of the meat??
Probably not much. And the juice coming OUT of the meat is probably equal to the marinade going INTO the meat. So the calories that the marinade adds are probably negligible, or minimal.
