Marinading your meat or veggies is a simple and effective way to get more flavor in your favorite dishes. It’s a technique that I think is often overlooked by home cooks. I can admit that I don’t use marinades as often as I could. Sometimes I forget until there isn’t enough time to before I have to start cooking. And sometimes I don’t have the right ingredients on hand. (Can you tell I need to re-read my own “Meal Planning 101” Post?) With this marinade recipe I had all but one of the ingredients in my fridge or pantry.
This marinade could be used on steak, chicken, beef roasts, and veggies. Today I am using it to give a blade roast some Mexican flair so that I can make yummy pulled beef tacos.
