WIN :MORE Nestle Goodies and Get your Marinating TIPS
Summer Cookout Marinating TIPS:
Sauces-Don't put the sauce on until the meat is about ready. Too early and the sugars will burn and blacken.
Marinades- Simply marinating your meat for at least 20 minutes not only improves flavor but tenderizes all cuts of meat. (Note: red meat, poultry and pork can be marinated in the refrigerator overnight, but fish should be soaked for no longer than 20 minutes, as marinating actually starts the cooking process in fish).
POP Marinade - Marinade steaks or chicken with Pepsi (or Coke if you prefer) cola makes meat tender
Containers: Combine the meat and marinade in a nonreactive, sealed container such as ceramic, glass, plastic. Avoid metal containers including aluminum and cast iron.
Zip Bag marinating - Place meat and marinade is a resealable plastic bag, it keeps the meat coated and east clean-up. Turn the zip bag several times during the marinating process to get all the meat covered the marinade.
Party Hopping: There are FOUR more Block parties going on this week and you are invited to stop by Classy Chaos, Cutie Booty Cakes, Momma Findings and The Not-so Blog.
