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.

Kelly_S, I'd love to try these, but I've noticed that some of the measurements came up with an asterisk (*) instead of a number. I'm guessing they are either 1/4 or 3/4 cup, but I'm not sure. Can you help us out?

I'm sorry my browser isn't showing any * for anything it shows all numbers.
