Some Like It Hot Marinade

I love marinades, well, most marinades.  And the meat that really requires a great marinade is flank steak.  Just throwing together some vinegar and oil for a marinade is not going to cut it.  In fact, it sounds more like a salad dressing rather than a marinade.

One of our local grocery stores grills meat in the parking lot on weekends during the summer.  As you drive up to get the shopping done, you walk through all these wonderful smells of barbecuing.  And then you walk into the store, grab some meat and go home to grill it yourself.  I’ve done this too many times to count.  And forgotten the milk I went to the store to buy originally.

This marinade is really good and hot.  What saves the day, however is that before you throw it onto the grill, you wipe off the marinade.  When you bite into the meat, you still have the taste of some flavorful heat but it is tempered down.  Try it once, your flank steaks will love you.IMG_5803

See?  Everyone looks happy here!

Put all the ingredients into the food processor and let me warn you, do not put you nose down in there to smell the aroma.  The aroma will kick you in the butt!IMG_5812

Place it all into a plastic bag along with the meat and let it marinate for four hours or longer.  Try to make this a day ahead and let it marinate in the frig over night.  Yummy!IMG_5814

See?  This is pretty simple and it packs a wallop of taste for your meat.  Try it this upcoming weekend when I know you will all be out there grilling meat for Father’s Day!

About Fae

Although I have other blogs I do for my grandchildren, I felt it wasn't enough to satisfy my inner author. I needed a grownup blog to share things on or rant about. Purely egocentric. Hope you like it.
