No meat should hit the grill before being marinated, brined, or given a good rub-down with seasonings. If you want to add pizzazz, marinades provide endless ways to take your meat to the next level.
Before getting started, place your meat in a resealable plastic bag. Then, add your choice of ingredients and shake until your meat is evenly coated. Simply let your meat marinate for 12-24 hours in the fridge before grilling. The result will be so moist and flavorful that you’ll have no need for additional seasonings. To give you a few ideas, here are some of my favorite marinades:
- Teriyaki sauce
- Italian dressing
- Olive oil, rosemary, garlic, and lemon
- Apple cider vinegar, cumin, and onions
- Soy sauce, garlic, and ginger
- Olive oil, chili powder, thyme, and orange (slices or peels)
- Balsamic, soy sauce, and Worcestershire
- Vegetable oil, mustard, honey, and curry powder
Don’t forget the toast!
