Directions

Mix all ingredients together. Place meat of your choice in marinade. You can even add this marinade to a ziploc bag while the meat is defrosting. Let sit in refridgerator. The longer they marinade the better they are! I try for at least 5 hours but you can do it as much as overnight if you have the time. Remove from ziploc and place meat on grill. Grill for about 5-10 min per side depending on how thick your meat is and what kind of meat you've chosen to use. Will marinade 4 4-oz servings of meat. Meat is not included in calorie count so track that separately.

    I marinated pork steak with this recipe. It was so tender and juicy! I used a little of the marinade to toss in some veggies, which I roasted on a cookie sheet. I thought it was delicious! My husband thought it was delicious! He was amazed I used a recipe instead of instant! - 11/7/09

    We had this for dinner tonight. It was delicious. My husband is not a big garlic eater, next time I will only use 2 garlic cloves and see if it helps. - 11/2/09

  • I used this marinade to grill chicken. I kept the leftovers in my fridge and used it for a few great lunches. My favorite was putting about 3 oz of diced chicken and a serving of brown rice in a non-stick skillet on medium to warm. I added chopped green onion, some cilantro, and lime juice. Yum! - 5/10/13
