All Around Marinade

Recipe by Matts Lotus
READY IN: 5mins


  • 1
    (18 ounce) bottle Italian dressing
  • 12
    cup rice vinegar (I like to use the flavored rice vinegar or a can of beer. I have used Guinness, Miller high life, an)
  • 1
    tablespoon Mrs. Dash seasoning mix, blend (you can use any of the flavors I have used most of them, whichever your prefer)
  • 14 - 12
    cup brown sugar (alter to your taste less is bitter more is sweeter )
  • 1 -2
  • 1 -2
    tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1
    tablespoon fresh ground pepper (optional)
  • 2
    tablespoons jalapeno juice (optional, Matt and I like spicy food)


  • Mix all of the ingredients together and marinade meat in it for a few hours
  • I use a 1 gallon ziplock bag but you can use a bowl or a pan or whatever you like -- I personally like to make the marinade in the morning and let it marinade all day long -- the longer it marinades the more tender and flavorful the meat is --
  • Cook meat as desired:.
  • Bake - I suggest baking it for the majority of the time to keep the meat from drying out, and putting it on a different pan for the last few minutes without the juices to sear it and get a glazed effect.
  • Grill - I would suggest brushing the marinade onto the meat while grilling to keep the meat from drying out to much.
