Fajita Marinade

This zesty marinade gets its punch from red wine vinegar and chili powder. If you'd like, substitute a fresh chili for the powder.

Grill or saute using these great flavors.

Teriyaki Marinade by Sara

Soy sauce gives this chicken a beautifully browned color when grilling. This recipe is a bit milder - a great one to have in your collection of family favorites.

Brown Sugar Lemon Marinade by Amanda

Lemon gives life to any dish. Pair it with brown sugar, and you have an instant hit. Also, lemons stay fresh in your refrigerator for quite awhile, so this is a convenient recipe when you haven't planned dinner.

Marinating Tips

Meat should not be left at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

Be extra careful and marinade your meats in the refrigerator.

Also, do you want to use the leftover marinade as a sauce? Then boil it for several minutes. Most of the time, I throw it away.

Another benefit of marinating meat is how it won't stick to your grill or skillet.
