Marinades

Kebab Marinade

June 23, 2020

Making your own marinade is an easy and creative way to add flavor to a recipe. You can let the food soak up the marinade for a few hours or even brush it on right before grilling. This is a balsamic and soy sauce-based marinade that works well with many meat and vegetables.

Turn any roasted or grilled vegetable into a picnic ready cold salad by marinating it for a few hours in this sweet-tart vinaigrette. Stir in your favorite fresh herbs just before serving.

Marinating flank steak is a super easy way to have a quick main course for either weeknights or weekends. Marinate extra and use in a salad for next day lunch or dinner.

This Italian Herb Marinade is wonderful on grilled meat, as a marinade, or dolloped on roasted vegetables. You can even serve it as a salad dressing.

I love this thick mustard marinade. It’s delicious on chicken, and it can be also served as a sauce over plain grilled food. I’m grilling this weekend and will be marinating chicken breasts in this fabulous marinade.

Summer is here and July 4th is right around the corner, which means grilling heaven. Grilling season calls for a reliable All-Purpose Marinade. This marinade is perfect for skirt or flank steak, but also works for chicken or pork.
