Placing an unique flavor into your barbecued meat is amongst the endeavors of many backyard cooks.

Rather then layering on sauce while the meat is cooking, marinades have the ability to both flavor and tenderize the meats. More than any other meat, beef does rather well with marinades.

Lots of stores carry numerous kinds of marinades but you may also use a quick salad dressing marinade if you’re short on time. Italian dressing is wonderful for most cuts of beef but not absolutely everyone appreciates the taste.

One of the secrets to using marinades, either your own recipe or one of the mixtures from the store, is how long you let the meat soak up the flavor before placing it on the grill. This is one homemade marinade recipe that can increase the flavor.

Utilize a one-quart jar, with a lid that seals. Mix these ingredients, in order:

1-1/2 cups vegetable oil

¾ cup soy sauce

½ cup white wine vinegar

¼ cup Worcestershire sauce

Be sure to shake this mix well until it is well combined, then combine in:

2 tablespoons ground mustard

2 teaspoons salt

1 tablespoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon of chopped parsley

2 tablespoons ground cloves

Start to shake really well until everything is mixed in absolutely. You can then utilize a large bowl, with a lid in which to soak the meats, or a plastic storage bag that seals shut.

Position the meat in the large bowl and let it sit for three days. If you use a bowl, you will have to baste the meat every day. In fact, twice daily is ideal. If you use the storage bag, turn the bag over twice daily until you are prepared to barbecue.
