|These boneless ribs come out tender and pack a punch with my Big Fat Daddy's zesty marinade. Recipe soon to follow.|
|Juicing your marinades pull out the ingredients in the spices that you would not normally expect.|
In this case, I have my original zesty marinade recipe that you can make in small batch quantities at home, but you will need a juicer. This marinade can be applied days ahead of time on you steak, chicken or ribs to marinate in the fridge, or can be used immediately when cooking to produce a zesty flavor full of heat. My wife loves this on her wings.
Ingredients for My Zesty Rib Marinade: (7 ingredients)
This will yield enough for one large rack of ribs, or two small racks, a family pack of chicken, one rump roast, a small brisket, or six nice steaks.
2 teaspoons whole mustard seed (Sauer's)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 teaspoon Whole Peppercorn melange' or Peppercorn Medley (Sauer's)
1 slice of a small red onion (fresh)
1 pinch of White Pepper
1 small fresh clove of garlic (Peeled)
1/3 Cup Lite Italian Dressing
Blend the ingredients in a juicer. Not using a juicer will yield you unsavory results. I cannot stress enough how a juicer can take a small piece of food and pull out the flavors you never expected. These ingredients must be juiced until they create a liquid. You will still see small chunks of peppercorns which should now resemble large bits of pepper but no trace of the onion. (see photo above).
You can either:
A) Marinate your meat with this product up to 24 hours in the fridge. The longer you marinade the more overpowering the peppers and garlic will become. I usually do not go over 24 hours but my wife marinades wings up to 48 hours in this, and they are good.
B) Pour over your meat when baking using 3/4 of the product up front, and 1/4 of the product nearing the end of your cook time as a brush on baste, or dribble baste.
For grilled products, you will want to use 3/4 of the marinade as in step A, but save 1/4 of the product as a last minute baste. You must remember the oil in the dressing will speed up the browning process so using A.
