Fire up the grill. This Rockin Meat Marinade for the Juiciest Meat Ever NEEDS to be a staple in your kitchen!!
BBQ season is the best. So many great recipes to make and EAT. From breakfast to dessert, cooking on the grill will keep you fed and happy all season long.
Nothing is better than having a great cut of meat sizzling away. The aroma is so awesome, and it can literally drive your neighbours crazy. How many times have you sat in your backyard and said, “someone is barbecuing”? Before we even get into this post, you will want to check out my Homemade Onion Gravy. Hubby has claimed this to be the BEST gravy for steak!
What Is Your Favourite Cut of Meat?
When it comes to grilling, we LOVE all kinds of meat. Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, and lots of seafood too. The more stuff I can get hubby to cook on the grill the better. I will say he does do a terrific job of bacon and eggs for the weekend brunch!!
When we were grocery shopping last week, I was over the moon excited to find a Tomahawk steak. Have you ever tried a Tomahawk steak? OMG. Picture this, Fred Flintstone holding up a HUGE piece of meat on the end of a GIGANTIC steak bone.
This steak is large enough to feed a family, I kid you not. Looking to impress your guests? Serve this honkin piece of meat, it will be the talk of the party. They will be begging to be invited back.
You Need a GREAT Meat Marinade
Do you prefer rubs, or marinades? We use both (and lots of them). Depending on what we are cooking, both have their place, and produce amazing results. Making you own at home is so easy, and you know exactly what is in them. Plus you get to experiment with lots of different flavours, creating your own signature blend.
Back at the beginning of my blogging career, I posted Will’s Extra Special Marinade on the blog. When we bought this winner steak, I just had to create a new marinade. I mixed up some simple ingredients (that can be found in most kitchens). Things like olive oil, red wine, and balsamic vinegar, you know, pantry staples.
I placed the steak in a freezer bag, poured in the marinade, and placed it in the fridge overnight. I turned it a few times to try and even out the marinating process. Prior to grilling I removed it from the fridge for about 40 minutes or so, to get the meat to room temperature.
I was totally amazed when I took the steak out of the bag. You could just see how well the marinade worked on the meat. It was almost falling off the bone, and it was still raw!! I knew this was going to be so juicy. Bring on dinner.
Fire up that grill baby, get this meat rockin. The aroma coming off that BBQ was amazing. I would have loved to hear what the neighbours were saying. Glad they didn’t see the size of the steak, or I’m sure they would have shown up at our door with a bottle of wine for dinner.
Now the moment of truth, cutting into that meat. All I can say is WOW. It was so juicy and tender. The flavour was out of this world. This was by far, better than ANY steak I have had at a restaurant EVER.
Treat yourself (and your guests if you are really generous) to an awesome steak. With this Rockin Meat Marinade for the Juiciest Meat Ever and a GREAT cut of meat, going out for a great steak dinner will be a thing of the past when you can do this at home. ENJOY!
