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.

My marinade tip is to adjust the time you marinate based on the size and thickness of your meet. Thicker meats need to marinate much longer.

My best marinating tip is to put the marinade in a ziploc bag along with what you're marinating. It's easy to turn it over, shake to mix, etc. It's really the best way to marinate.

I marinate most of my meats because of once a month cooking....marinating them in the freezer bags for weeks makes them taste awesome in my opinion.
My husband's favorite marinade though is when i throw everything I can find from my fridge into the bag with steaks - dressing, worcestershire sauce, mustard, hoisin sauce - lol it's the everything but the kitchen sink marinade. And it tastes awesome!

My favorite marinade is actually bbq sauce and teriyaki sauce mixed together. I know it sounds strange but it so yummy. I also buy meat in bulk and then put the meat in the freezer in the marinade that way when you take it out and it defrost it is doing so in marinade. It makes it so yummy!

My favorite marinade tip is to take the meat out of the frig for the last 1/2 hour of marinading. It is long enough to improve to the flavor, but not long enough to have to worry about bad bacteria growing.

We usually marinate using a dry rub. If you do a whole chicken be sure to get it under the skin and do the inside of the chicken because it doesn't go through the skin.
