Tender Ideas for Your Marinades

BBQs are at the heart of summertime cooking—although some people use their BBQs all year long! That’s why we’re always on the lookout for new ideas to spice up our BBQ favourites. Here are a few ideas to get you started.


 

Easy Homemade BBQ Sauce

Follow our recipe for a delicious and easy homemade BBQ sauce.

 


Basic Marinade

Basic Marinade

For the perfect marinade, just follow these easy steps:

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) of a fatty ingredient to infuse flavours: oil, butter;
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) of an acidic ingredient to tenderize meat and break down tough fibres: citrus juice, vinegar, mustard, yogurt, apple juice;
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) flavourings for taste: herbs and spices, soy sauce, hot sauce, garlic;
  • Calculate at least 1 cup (250 mL) of marinade per kilo of meat.

Beer Marinades

Beer marinades not only add flavour, they also tenderize meat and fish. For the perfect pairing, serve your guests the same kind of beer used in your marinade. Our Spicy Marinade with Three Mustards and Beer is a great recipe to start with and pairs perfectly with red meat.

 


Dry Marinades

Dry Marinades

Also called rubs, these marinades are made from spice mixes that are rubbed into meat for a quick way to enhance flavour. You can find plenty of varieties in-store—or simply make your own rub at home!
