- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup snipped parsley
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- Combine all ingredients in a zip lock bag.
- Place lamb, pork, beef, or chicken into bag, press out air& seal.
- Refrigerate 4 to 6 hours to overnight, turning bag occasionally.
We make sasliks (term from Eastern Europe). All it is is chunks (2 inch) of pork, chicken or beef, marinated, skewered and grilled. I have been using this recipe for pork. It really is a nice marinade. It is flavorful but not overpowering. I slice the onion into rings. When they are nice and soft I know the meat is ready. I include the rings on the skewer when grilling. Tasty!
Super marinade- doesn't overpower, but enhances the meat. I used this on steaks which I pan-grilled. Did this on the spur of the moment so didn't have any parsley, otherwise followed ingredients list and only marinated two hours. Will definitely use again and again. Thanks for posting!
Marinated some chicken breasts in this recipe and grilled them outdoors. Very tasty and delicious. Loved the addition of tomato juice for extra flavor and I also used the fresh herbs. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Judy!
