Marinade To Try


So I have been experimenting lately and trying new ways and ingredients to prepare marinades for the meat I am grilling. I have been recently grilling some boneless chicken breast and wanted to tweak my normal marinade. I have now been using olive oil as a base to start my marinades. I see those famous chefs like Bobby Flay using olive oil. So, like every good chef, I thought I would try it out. My normal marinade that I used was lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce based with some dry ingredients.


I started with olive oil, some balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. I then added some minced garlic, Italian seasoning and onion powder. I normally try to marinate my meat for at least twenty four hours. The meat seems to get a lot tenderer when those acids break down the connective tissue. I was very pleased with the results. Not only were the chicken breasts full of flavor, but the olive oil added a golden brown crust to the outside. It also was very tender and a bit sweeter than normal. My family enjoyed the meat very much. I have yet to try this new marinade on steak but I am sure that it will have similar results. So, I want to share this recipe with you fellow culinary inventors on hub pages so that you can enjoy it as much as I do. Now, I don’t have a certain measurement for ingredients which I seldom do. So you will have to use your best judgment. Here are the ingredients.


Ingredients:


1. Olive Oil (Extra Virgin)


2. Worcestershire Sauces


3. Palma grant Balsamic Vinegar


4. Fresh or bottled lemon juice


5. A jar of Minced Garlic


6. Onion Powder or Onion flakes


7. Italian Seasoning


Now, one way to get all these ingredients pretty well mixed, blend the items together. When I marinate meat, I use a gallon Ziploc bags and pour marinade over meat. I let all the air out so the bag resembles a vacuum packed bag. It is very simple and is packed with great flavor. I hope you enjoy this and let me know what you think about this marinade. Also, please share any other ideas with me because I am always ready to try new recipes.

I have never thought about making my own marinade, I just buy it. It's most likely a LOT cheaper to make your own. I'm going to have to try this. Your hub made me hungry! Voted UP/Useful/Hungry!
