Marinate Before You Grill – Frugal Tip
With summer on the way it’s time to clean of the grill. Sure it’s nice to grill up a nice steak, some chicken breast or put a chunk of salmon on a cedar plank. Expensive cuts of meat and fish make it easy to end up with a tender and flavorful grilled meal. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With a little marinating, even less expensive cuts of meat can turn out mouthwateringly delicious. Here are a few cuts of meat that will benefit from a marinate before you throw them on the grill. Not only will it add lots of flavor, it will tenderize the meat and keep it from drying out. Flank Steak – Try marinating this in a mixture of vegetable oil, spices and some onion and garlic. Lots of great flavor and if you marinate overnight, you’ll end up with some great tender steak. Chuck Steaks – Again, marinate with oil and spices. Be sure not to overcook this cut of beef on the grill and serve it right away. Chicken Thighs – We love grilling chicken thighs. Brush on some barbecue sauce for extra flavor and you’re good to go. Pork Chops – These are a weekday favorite around here. They are quick and easy to grill. Try brushing on some soy sauce and sesame oil for an asian flavor or brush them with a bit of mustard and honey for a yummy meal.
