Top 5 best marinade recipes

Good afternoon, my favorite subscribers and visitors of my blog. Finally, spring gained momentum, the weather makes us happy with the warmth of the sun and the holiday weekend is just around the corner. And that means it's time for a friendly company to get together for a picnic. Well, I think you will agree with me that not a single hike in nature can do without a tasty, fragrant kebab. 😀

After all, grilled meat on the fire is something special. At home, in the oven and even on aerogrill, never cook such a fragrant, roasted kebab, as on a fire, diluted on the bank of a river in the nearby forest. And in order to make the meat soft and tender, marinades are invented in the world. It is about them today that I want to talk, and share with you super recipes for kebab of pork, chicken, lamb.


What is marinade? Tips for making marinade

Marinade is a mixture of seasonings, vegetable oils and natural products containing acids. The marinated meat becomes softer and more aromatic, thanks to the marinade ingredients.For pork, beef and lamb marinades make saturated, while marinades for poultry and fish should be more delicate and tender. And the harder the meat, the longer you need to keep it in the marinade.

Remember !! It is not recommended to put salt in marinades, since the hypertonic solution will simply “suck out” all the juice from the meat, and the kebab will turn out to be dry. For the same reason, do not make the marinade too "sour."

Useful tips:

  1. Marinades are made from the most unexpected and even exotic ingredients in order to give the marinade a sweet, spicy, sour or spicy taste. Ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce, kiwi, mayonnaise, brandy, coffee, mustard, mineral water with gas, yogurt, various spices, pomegranate juice, onion, garlic - all this can become ingredients of your marinade. But note that the marinade should not be too much. Since in the process of marinating the meat will give its juice, the amount of liquid will increase even more.
  2. Do not use aluminum dishes for marinating meat. Usually, the meat is marinated in a large enamel saucepan and even in a bucket, if a large company is going to the kebabs. But if such dishes are not at hand, it is quite possible to get along with the usual plastic bag, only the whole.
  3. The duration of marinating depends on several factors: the stiffness of the meat, the time you have, and the availability of the right products in the refrigerator. If time is tight, choose a recipe for a more “vigorous” marinade, and if you add onions to it, do not cut it into rings, as usual, but rub it on a grater. In such a marinade, the meat should be kept literally for 2-3 hours, otherwise it will be bitter.
  4. Fish should not be kept in the marinade for a long time - 45 minutes is enough. Does not require long preparation and poultry meat. Chicken skewers can begin to fry within half an hour after laying the meat in the marinade.
  5. If you cut the meat into large chunks, it will take longer to marinate. Cutting meat is necessary across the fibers so that the pieces do not “shrink” during cooking.
  6. Dishes with meat should be placed in a cool place, preferably in the refrigerator.

Advice: when using kiwi for a shashlik, do not forget: in such a marinade, the meat cannot be overexposed, because the special protein enzyme contained in the fruit very quickly cleaves animal protein and the shish kebab overexposed to kiwi turns into a paste, therefore it is important to follow the recipe exactly. You can marinate with kiwi any meat - poultry, pork, beef, etc.
