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.

CHINESE CHEER. Combine 3 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sherry (optional), 1 tablespoon minced jalapeno peppers (wear plastic gloves when handling), 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil and 1 teaspoon minced garlic. Makes about 1/3 cup or just over 5 tablespoons (per tablespoon with sherry - 54.3 calories/0.9 fat grams/0.1 fiber grams…without sherry - 50.2 calories/0.9 fat grams/0.1 fiber grams).

LATIN SALSA. Combine 1/3 cup mild or medium salsa, 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar, ½ teaspoon ground cumin, ¼ teaspoon ground red (cayenne) pepper and a pinch of salt. Makes about 1/3 cup or just over 5 tablespoons (per tablespoon - 15.2 calories/0.1 fat grams/0.3 fiber grams.

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.
