How to Add Subtitles to MKV with VLC Freely

Basically I’d like the subtitles (which I have in a separate srt file) to become part of the video(MKV) itself, so I can put my video on a USB key and watch it on another device, while still displaying the subtitles. I noticed that VLC is able to achieve the goal. So, any tips for me to add subtitles to MKV with VLC easily?
