marvellous-marinades

Because our beef, pork, lamb and chicken are naturally tender, I’ve chosen non-vinegar based recipes, and only 30 minutes to an hour of marinating will be sufficient to infuse flavour. These flavour combinations will work well with all meats, and even with meaty fish, like salmon, too.

Moroccan marinade

Ingredients:
2 tsp ground Cumin
1 tsp ground Coriander
A generous grinding of Black Pepper,
3 tbsp Natural Yoghurt
1 Garlic clove, crushed
1 fresh Green Chili, chopped (optional).

Method:
Combine all ingredients together and brush onto your beef, pork, lamb or chicken, but I find that this is particularly good on lamb and chicken.

Smoky BBQ marinade

Ingredients:
3 tsp Smoked Paprika
½ tsp dried Thyme
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp Golden or Maple Syrup
2 tbsp Lapsang Souchong tea
A generous grinding of Salt and Pepper

Method:
Combine all ingredients together and brush onto your beef, pork, lamb and chicken, but I find that this is particularly good on beef and pork.

Simply seasoned & spiced…

The easiest of all, simply use our THE Perfect Seasoning as a dry rub, leaving to marinate the same as you would for a wet marinade.
