Grilling season is upon us, and grilling and marinating go hand in hand, much like pork roast and potatoes or bacon and eggs. Some of the best grill recipes I’ve ever used incorporate marinade. And there are four big reasons for that:
So, if you decide to marinate your meat, what should you include in the marinade? Most marinades have three basic components:
But the answer to the question is more specific, depending upon the taste you prefer. Are you looking for a punch of spice or a soft hint of sweetness? Or do you desire an Asian style flavor over a Mexican grill? You can get as creative as you would like with your marinade ingredients! It’s that straight forward.
While marinating is really quite simple, here are a few basic tips that will help with the process, and there are some that should be followed for health purposes.
Now that we have discussed the basics of marinating and the purposes of using it for grilling, I’ll share a couple of my favorite marinade and grill recipes:
Marinated Oriental Pork Tenderloin with Fried Rice. While the pork tenderloin is a succulent cut of meat, this recipe makes it marvelously tender and absolutely delicious. If you like Asian food, this grilled dish will satisfy your craving. I know it did for me and John!
Marina's Pork Marinade with Marina's Cranberry Chutney. One night as I was getting ready to make dinner, I decided to try something different. We were going to grill chops that night, and I thought "Why not make my own marinade?" So I opened the refrigerator and began to go through it. I chose ingredients that would complement each other as well as our Circle B Ranch pasture-fed Berkshire pork.. The resulting recipe turned out to be absolutely delicious. I was truly honored when the recipe published in Missouri's Midwest Living Magazine!
