LOOKING for: looking for marinade

zbullAugust 7, 2002

Does anyone have a good red wine meat marinade that does not contain alot of oil? I used to use "Red Wine Marinade" by Mr. Marinade, a brand by T. Marzetti located in Ohio. You could marinate beef, pork, or chicken and cut it with a fork. The line was discontinued about 2 years ago. T. Marzetti's other lines of marinade are to spicey. I prefer a marinade that tenderizes the meat, not one that overwhelms the taste.

Here's a simple, yet effective one by James Beard:

1/2 C burgundy wine
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. each rosemary and thyme
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

The primary function of oil is to facilitate the co-mingling of disparate flavors so as to become homogeneous. You can reduce the oil here by half if you want, but I would also cut the Worcestershire by half if you do.

Or, you can try this. It's not a wine marinade but is it *really* good. The meat gets really tender but the flavors remain subtle, at least to my palate.

1 tsp. lemon zest
1/2 C lemon juice
1/3 C canola oil
2 Tbsp. sliced scallions w/tops
1 clove garlic, minced
4 tsp. sugar
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Worcestershire
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1/8 tsp. pepper
