I think it depends on the date the steaks expire and the type of marinade. Anything too acidic will make them mushy. There are recipes that call for long marinating time, I'd look those up.

deena, you DO mean marinade as in a vinaigrette, liquid dressing? not a spice coating, right?

I'd freeze them a bit. Then slice them and make jerky out of them. After you slice them put them back in the marinade another day. Then dry them at the lowest oven setting on a rack.

Only if you like pickled steak.

I'm guessing they'd be kinda mushy. Curious why you would marinate a ribeye steak in the first place. The only kind I marinate is something like chuck steak, to break down the tough membranes.
