  • 3 Remove meat from marinade; reserve marinade. Cook meat as desired, brushing occasionally with marinade.

Tips

Expert Tips

Marinades add exciting flavor to meat, poultry, fish, seafood and vegetables! Mix marinades and marinate in glass or plastic containers or heavy plastic food-storage bags because these containers won’t react with acid ingredients like vinegar, wine or lemon juice. Plan on using 1/4 to 1/2 cup marinade for each 1 to 2 pounds of food. You can marinate all foods except fish in the refrigerator up to 24 hours; if you let it marinated longer, food can become mushy. Marinate fish only 15 to 30 minutes or it will become mushy.
