Big Fat Daddy's Zesty Marinade Recipe Ribs Chicken Steak

Boneless Country Style Ribs Baked ten minute prep time
These boneless ribs come out tender and pack a punch with my Big Fat Daddy's zesty marinade. See how to do this Boneless Country Ribs meal here. 
I get asked a lot about basting meats, using marinades or using injections.  This is something I do quite frequently and I'm old school, so I believe when doing them "less is more."  In my opinion, twenty crappy ingredients won't yield you the same results a few fresh ingredients.  I am a firm believer that less ingredients extracted at a higher quality, can produce a better result.  Much along the same lines of my dry rub, I feel that marinades really bring out the flavor of your meats.

Big Fat Daddys Marinade
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:  REGULAR   (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

or (Use Gluten Free Recipe Here) for Less Zesty Alternative)

2 teaspoons whole mustard seed  (Sauer's)
1 tablespoons Sea Salt
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 Olive Oil
1 teaspoon fresh dill
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon basil

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.
