EASY MARINADES FOR MEATS

1. Marinades are the most effective way to flavor and moisten extra-lean
cuts of meat which can often be dry
due to lack of fat. Use about 1 pound of lean beef or pork with any of the
following marinades. For the best
results, marinate the meat in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. To keep
meats moist during cooking, baste
frequently with the marinade.
