This is a variation of a recipe I got from a book that came with my BBQ. I used strip loin steaks and it was fantastic. You don't need any steak sauce to go with it. The taste from the marinade is delicious!
This recipe came from Allrecipes (Ruth Crickmer). My whole family loved it even though it cooked too fast. The original recipe said 'high heat' on the grill, which my husband did. It ended up cooking 8 minutes total, charred but not burnt tasting, and very juicy and flavorful. We'll turn down the heat next time for texture, but this is a keeper in our home!
A wonderful marinade for chicken. If you don't have Miracle Whip, mayonnaise may be substituted. I usually marinate chicken in the marinade at least 30 minutes before cooking. However, I once took chicken sitting in the marinade to a cook-out, and other people there who had brought their own chicken started dipping their chicken in my left-over marinade to coat, then barbecuing right away without waiting for it to marinate. It was still delicious! I've found I can coat over a dozen chicken pieces with a single recipe of the marinade. These days I make this without the Tbs of salt when making it just for myself, but people's tolerance for low salt varies widely and so I've posted it the way I've found suits most people best. I'd say be guided by your own tastes when it comes to amount of salt used.
This marinade will produce the most tender and not to mention the best tasting steak and it's enough for up to four steaks about 1-1/2-inches thick --- just remember to bring the steaks to almost room temperature before grilling this will relax the meat fibers and make for a more tender juicy steak --- the amounts may be doubled but keep the garlic at the same amount, for best results it is recommended to not substitute any ingredients, do not add any salt to the marinade and do not salt the meat until ready to grill --- this marinade may be used for any cut of steaks.
This is the way I always prepare my BBQ ribs. They result in fall off the bone tender ribs, and they are always a hit. The spices listed are what I submitted for this recipe, however I probably never use the same thing twice. Play around with those ingredients you enjoy the most. Prep time includes marinating time.
Yes, you can make authentic gyros at home --> the texture and flavor of this meat is as good as you get in a good Greek restaurant, without the traditional rotating spit.. but this is just the recipe and technique for making the meat, for I'm assuming you know the drill on making the classic gyro sandwich - stuff the meat in a grilled pita with sliced tomatoes, onions and tzaziki sauce.. Enjoy!
I am going through my saved recipes that I cut out of magazines, and this is one of them I thought sounded tasty! For those that like it with a little more kick, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. Note: Time doesn't include marinating time.
Update: I have now made this several times. I just love that the marinade is so quick to make and that I am able to cook it outdoors on the grill, very important here in Florida. This is such a tasty pork chop compared to fried or baked.
My 9 year old daughter requests Moroccan Chicken whenever I mention 'chicken' is for dinner. This recipe came from a Rotisserie Cookbook I have. The marinade/paste for the chicken can be put on as early as that morning, or as late as an hour before grilling and it will still have a wonderful flavor. You can also leave the chicken whole and put it on a rotisserie if you have one. Enjoy!
I combined my sister-in-law's marinade recipe with my friend's barbecue cooking method. I then submitted this recipe into to a radio station as part of a contest and I ended up winning the grand prize of a Jenairre stove! It's so versatile that it works both with cheap cuts of beef and expensive too. I won't cook beef roast any other way. Enjoy!
This marinade gives an "excellent" flavor to your steaks or beef tenderloin roast. I like to serve this with Hash Brown Potato Casserole, Garlic Salad and hot bread. It's a good meal to serve for a dinner party. (I have posted the recipes for the potato casserole and the garlic salad). Prep times and cook times vary depending on how well done or rare you like your meat).
There should be enough marinade for about 2-1/2 pounds of beef or chicken you may double the marinade ingredients but keep the fresh garlic and green onion at the same amount --- the meat needs to come down to almost room temperature before grilling so plan well ahead, also there is a marinating time of 8-24 hours, you may omit the cayenne completely if desired or adjust to suit heat level.
This is the marinade my father "Buck" used for years to make beef kabobs. I think it's from some barbecue book from the 50's. It was our family favorite for birthday dinners and family gatherings. All 5 of us kids now use this recipe with our own families. The longer you marinade the beef in it (in the fridge of course), the stronger the flavor will be. I like it mild, so I make mine in the morning and marinade the beef until dinner time. Some family members do marinade for 24 hours for a stronger flavor. Be sure to use the light soy sauce instead of regular to prevent this from being too salty. Note: You may need a package of long bamboo skewers for the recipe.
This recipe comes from my Dad's recipe file. It's a real treat to visit and have Dad make his trademarked, perfectly grilled and seasoned porterhouse steaks! The marinade is so simple that I'm able to do it in 5 minutes before heading off to work in the morning. Enjoy!
I haven't tried these yet but can't wait to. Found the recipe on another site its from Sovan Boun Thuy, owner Chez Sovan. Ginger can be substituted for galangal if you cant find it. Time does not include the 3 hr marinade. Just a note, i would not omit the kiwi because it has a tenderising effect on meat and will add a subtle flavor that doesnt disturb even if it is not your favorite fruit.
This is the best marinade for pork that I have ever used. It comes from an old Sunset Magazine cookbook. I usually make kabobs instead of an entire pork butt, reducing marinating time to 8 hrs and cooking time as needed.Preparation time does not include marinating.
