Recipe by CarrolJ

This is a method to speed up any refrigerated marinade time given in a recipe if time is short. You don't need a specific marinade...anything with a liquid base works good but it is best if the marinade includes either, vinegar, lemon juice or wine. All three of these ingredients tenderize the meat and help to fuse the flavors of the seasonings together. The heat generated forces the marinade into the meat quickly.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups liquid marinade
  • 3 -4 lbs meat


  1. Lay your meat in a single layer in the bottom of a large glass baking dish.
  2. Pour the marinade over the meat.
  3. Microwave on 'high' for 5 minutes.
  4. Let meat sit in microwave for 15 minutes.
  5. Turn meat over and repeat steps 3 and 4.
  6. Proceed with recipe instructions as if you had refrigerated the meat for hours.
