This is a basic recipe and stands alone for chicken - go from there to add your own seasonings for steak, pork, etc. I put beer in just about every marinade.

I used this marinade on steaks. They turned out so tender. I over cooked the smaller of the two steaks slightly but it was still tender. My husband even remarked that they were tender. The taste was also good very mild. You can eat by themselves or if you wanted to add a sauce it would be great. I marinaded over night. Read More

I tried this with chicken and I marinated it over night. I thought it was ok. Personally I thought it was on the salty side but the chicken was tender. I won't make it again although I think it is more suited for beef. Read More

This marinade tastes great even when I used light beer. I then grilled chicken which was very moist. Read More

I followed the recipe to the word and marinated boneless skinless chicken breasts for 8 hours. Although the chicken was moist it really just tasted like beer! My boyfriend and I really like beer - but this was a bit much. I used a regular lager. Should I have used light beer? Read More
