Home » Recipes » Marinades


  • The key functions of a marinade are to tenderize moderately tender cuts of beef, or cuts that tend to be variable in tenderness, and/or to add a distinctive flavor.
  • Always marinate under refrigeration, never at room temperature.
  • For tenderization, marinate at least 6 hours, but never more than 24 hours, as the meat will become mushy.
  • For flavor enhancement only, marinate from 15 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Marinades contain various herbs or spices, sometimes oil, and always an acidic ingredient.
  • Depending on the type of cuisine, the following liquid ingredients are often used in meat marinades:
    • Red Wine Vinegar
    • Balsamic Vinegar
    • Olive or Vegetable Oil
    • Lime Juice
    • Lemon Juice
    • Orange Juice
    • Wine
    • Pineapple Juice or Fresh Pineapple
    • Beer
    • Soy Sauce

The deliciously bold flavors of the marinades below will add a kick to beef.

To begin, place 2 pounds of beef and 1 cup of marinade in a zipper locking, plastic bag. Squeeze the air out of the bag and seal. Refrigerate shoulder and round steaks for up to 8 hours to fully develop both flavor and tenderness.

Top blade, ribeye, strip, tenderloin and T-bone steaks can be marinated for flavor in 30 minutes. For even more flavor, reserve and refrigerate ¼ cup of the sauce before marinating. Use it to baste the beef while grilling.
