A good marinade can make the difference between an okay meal and a great meal. It’s almost impossible to make a marinade that doesn’t taste good…so get creative!! All marinades need 3 things: oil, acid, and seasoning.
Combine these 3 ingredients & tailor to your taste preferences.
1. Oil (olive/canola/blend): helps meat not stick to the grill and helps keep the meat moist during grilling (use equal part oil and acid ingredients)
2. Acid – vinegar (white/red/balsamic/etc), salad dressing (Italian/vinaigrette), citrus fruit juice (fresh limes or lemons), wine/beer: allows flavor to penetrate meat & breaks down protein for tenderness
