Melt in Your Mouth Marinade

Rated as 4.32 out of 5 Stars
2

"A wonderful marinade that makes even the toughest cuts of beef so tender you could cut them with a butter knife. Tastes great on pork chops and chicken, too. Play with the amounts of garlic and ginger to suit your taste. I tend to use more rather than less. Makes enough for four servings."

This is a great marinade for just about anything you throw on the grill. I double the recipe and save it in my fridge so that it's ready to go when I want to prepare something quick in the morni...

I made this marinade but I 'beefed' it up a bit. I followed the recipe but I substituted 2 TBSP minced garlic from a jar and 3 TBSP prepared yellow mustard. On top of the recipe I added; 1/4 Wor...

This recipe is soooooooo good. I tried it on pork chops and marinated them for four hours only, but they were still great. I did not think they were too salty, but just right; however, they may...
