I can't possibly wait any longer.
I must share this meat marinade with you.
Now that John and I have officially kicked off grilling season - which, to us, means cooking outdoors about four evenings a week (I'm not kidding, we love grilling) - I rekindled my love for a good meat marinade.
I like plain steaks and chops and breasts and roasts and veggies. But something about an already flavorful steak or chop or breast or roast or veggie, complimented by a phenomenal marinade that hits every flavor point on my tongue is irresistible.
My neighbor from the farm in which I grew up has a bed and breakfast in his barn. It's classy. Stay with me here.
He shared with my parents a marinade that he uses for his guests if they request dinner instead of breakfast (in which case he fires up the grill and cooks 'em a steak - my kinda B&B!).
Here ya go:
Big Red Barn B&B Meat Marinade
3/4 cup of oil
1 tablespoon mustard
1/2 cup of lemon juice
2 tablespoons worchestershire
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon season salt
1 tablespoon of black pepper
1 tablespoon of cajun seasoning
Combine all ingredients and add any meat (beef, pork, deer, waterfowl, etc.) and let set in marinade for at least three hours, or up to eight hours. Hint: Cook your meat low and slow (low heat, slow cook time) for a crispy, salty crust. DELISH!
