In my ongoing pursuit for health and happiness in the absence of masses of what the world calls “wealth”, I subscribe to like-minded blogs and try to apply what I learn as I go along. Today I got an email from ModernChristianWomen for the recipe below, which looks and sounds delicious! I’m definitely going to try this one, and I thought you might like it too.
This is one of those unique recipes that you have to try to believe it’s good. The ingredients are a very unique combination (in my opinion – I’ve never had anything like it before!) but the result is an incredibly savory, smokey grilled flavor. You can use this marinade on both chicken and turkey – I haven’t tried it on pork, but I think it would be delicious! I have also tried this on fresh corn on the cob…very good! This recipe is a really nice change of pace from the more traditional BBQ chicken or Italian Dressing marinated chicken. My family requests it often – and I think yours will too!
- 1 cup cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 5 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 4 teaspoons hot sauce (I use Frank’s)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon mustard (I used yellow, but feel free to experiment here!)
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar (or honey or your favorite sweetener)
Combine all ingredients in a bow and mix well. Add desired meat to 1 cup of mixture and let marinate for 4 hours. Grill over medium heat for 20 minutes – turn and grill for 20 – 30 more minutes until juices run clear and meat is cooked through. Baste occasionally with extra marinade.
The total cost for this recipe is $.55 – pretty good deal! I love that a few simple pantry ingredients combine to create an amazing meal! And the difference in cost between this recipe and a store-bought marinade is about $2.00. GREAT savings!
First of all, I should admit that I have tried these kinds of flavour combinations before, so I know they work and taste awesome. Secondly, I have no idea how this recipe translates into rands. I’ll have to make it, calculate it, and update this post.
