"... Ingredients in a marinade can be varied, but it is important to
use wine, vinegar, lemon juice, or some acidic liquid to break down
the connective tissues. This process will make the steak more tender.
Remaining marinade ingredients add flavor." Use a good-quality olive
oil or walnut oil; add good-quality wine or vinegar and a combination
of fresh and dried herbs, seasonings, garlic and soy sauce to make a
flavorful marinade. 1. Place all ingredients in glass screw-top jar;
shake vigorously. Arrange meat in shallow glass dish; pierce with a
fork. Pour marinade over meat; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate
several hours or overnight, turning meat occasionally. 2. Remove
meat from marinade; pat dry. Remove any pieces of spices or herbs
that may stick to meat. This recipe is a steak marinade, but the
ingredients can be adapted for other meats using the same techniques.
