Easy Meat Marinating Recipe

This recipe will explain how to marinate meat so that it is full of flavor and very tender.

Marinating meat can be lots of fun if you like to experiment. The meaning of marinating meats is to give your meat lots of flavor and to keep it tender. One of the secrets behind marinating is to use vinegar. You usually only need a half cup but if you like vinegar, or have a lot of meat, then you might want to use a full cup of it. You can also dilute it a little with water, so that it isn't as potent. Either way, you will open the meat up and this allows the meat to stay tender when you are cooking it.

You can make a mixture of this vinegar, along with all of your favorite spices, and then pour it over your meat, making sure that it is covering all of your meat. Add some Meat Tenderizer to this,(seasoned or unseasoned), cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to an hour. The longer you keep the meat marinated, the more flavor you will have, but if left for too long, the meat can become tough, so no longer than 24 hours refrigeration time. If you have thick steak, you may want to pound it to open it up more so more of the juice is soaked up into the meat.

If you don't like vinegar, then you can substitute lemon juice or wine instead. Make sure that the wine that you use is something that you like to drink. Most likely, if you don't like the taste of the wine enough to drink it, then you aren't going to like the taste of it in a marinade.



If you are watching your salt intake, you may prefer to use powder spices, instead of salts. The powders work especially well with vinegar.

Remember when marinating meat to have fun and to try new things. Find out what your family like and try that in the marinade. In no time, you should have wonderful tasting meat.
