Marinade Recipes

These marinade recipes are easy and healthy ways of creating the best meat or meaty vegetables.

What’s A Marinade?

A marinade is a mixture of ingredients, typically including oil, acid (such as lemon juice or vinegar), herbs, and spices, that is used to flavor and tenderize meat, fish, or vegetables before cooking.

Marinades work by breaking down the outer layer of the meat or vegetables with their acidic ingredient.

This allows the spices and flavoring to penetrate the meat and tenderize it.

Marinating Time

It’s recommended to marinate meat for more than 2 hours for less than 24 hours.

If you leave your meat in the marinade for less than two hours, it won’t have time to absorb the spices and won’t taste as good.

On the other hand, if you leave the meat in the marinade for too long, it will break down too much tissue.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Store A Marinade?

You can store a marinade for a few days in the fridge as long as it hasn’t been used to marinate meat already.

Any marinade that has been used on meat should be discarded as it can carry bacteria from the meat and contribute to its proliferation.
