How to Make Marinades with Kitchen Staples
Perfect on Pork
One part peach preserves plus one part grainy mustard makes for a great marinade for pork. You can even use it as a condiment. The sweetness of the peach and the savory tartness of the mustard blend beautifully. It's an intriguing blend that will keep guests coming back for more.
One part soy sauce plus one part sesame oil, this marinade adds a savory and toasty flavor to fish. It's the perfect complement to any fish dish. Soy sauce adds a satisfying tanginess, while the sesame oil offers the delicate, toasty touch. The flavor is so complex that you won't believe it only uses two ingredients.
Spiced Up Beef
One part Dijon mustard plus Sriracha chili sauce gives spicy flavor to a lean cut of beef, like flank steak. A hearty beef dish demands simple but stunning spices. The Dijon elevates the flavor to somewhere near fancy, while the Siracha chili sauce adds the kick that every dinner guest craves.
Tangy Both Ways
One part apple cider vinegar plus one part honey, this tangy marinade will add loads of flavor to salmon or pork tenderloin. This is arguably the easiest marinade of the bunch, and you'll find yourself mixing it up constantly. It's that good.
