The right marinade can make all the difference between a meal that’s blah and a meal that’s hurrah! There are so many ways you can use marinades to add flavor and keep meats juicy and prevent them from drying out. That’s why we rounded up these delicious marinade recipes.
Here’s one of our best marinade tips. We like to place the meat in a container or freezer bag with the marinade and store it in the freezer. That’s right – you can marinate it right in the freezer! It works beautifully.
