Just because it’s because it’s been raining for the past two months straight doesn’t mean you aren’t going to do some serious grilling this Summer. If you’re like us, you’ve already started! Here are two GREAT, EASY marinades (one for steak and one for chicken) that will literally make your mouth water and have your family cheering for more. Bonus: you can make both of these with stuff that is already in your pantry, saving you the $5 – $10 on bottled marinades, and keeping that single-use plastic out of the environment. No to go on and on, but another thing I love about these marinades, apart from the facts that they keep your meat juicy and the flavor is outstanding, is that when you make your own, you know exactly what’s going into them: no strange chemicals, no artificial flavors, no sugar, no preservatives, no MSG, no tricks, no worries!
How do I know you are going to love these marinades? I’ll tell you. We had them both last night. When Axel, the world’s biggest steak lover, passes up steak in favor of this marinated grilled chicken, you know you’re on to something. As for the amazing flank steak, I only wish there was more left over. Time to whip up some more marinade!
