At Donald Russell we produce the highest level of quality meat to provide you with the best flavours in your own home. For when you want even more flavour out of your meat, we have created this Marinade Menu. In it you will find recipes for chicken marinades, pork marinades, and beef marinades, which will enhance the flavours of the meat and make it perfect for the barbecue, oven, or pan.

A proper marinade will make the meat juicier and change the flavour to create a new experience for every meal. Marinades typically include an acid, an oil, and some other seasonings to create a specific flavour. The acid in the marinade (like wine, vinegar, or citrus) work to break down protein chains when it makes contact with the meat, making it tenderer.

The oil in the marinade acts to preserve the moisture in the meat, and helps keep the meat juicy while it’s being cooked. Be careful not to use too much salt, as this will counteract the benefits of the oil, causing the meat to dry out and preventing the flavours from soaking in.

A good chicken marinade can put a new spin on an old favourite, but make sure you don’t marinate your meat for more than the recommended time. Over-marinating won’t make the meat more flavourful, but can make it mushy after too long.

With the marinade recipes above and this advice, you’ll be able to create new flavours for your meals and infuse new tastes into your meat.
