Homemade Meat Marinade Recipe

Yum
Homemade meat marinade recipe

Sometimes we just want a juicier and more flavorful cut of meat.

This is the time when you want to use a marinade. When I'm grilling lamb on the rod I like to use a simple Italian salad dressing as a marinade.

But, for steaks, roasts, chicken, and pork I whip up this easy homemade meat marinade.



This homemade meat marinade recipe has a balance of acids, oils, and spices. The acids help tenderize and make the meat juicy while the oils and spices add flavor. I don't always use a marinade but when I do I like to this recipe.

Here is the homemade meat marinade recipe:

1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic minced
1 small onion minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Montreal Steak Seasoning or Italian Seasoning 

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl place your cut of meat in a one-gallon zip lock bag or a baking dish cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 2 to 3 hours.

This should be enough for a large roast or 3 to 4 steaks. You can always cut the recipe down for smaller cuts of meat.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.

  1. I tend to use something out of a jar (especially oil-based salad dressings) when I marinade, but I have all of these ingredients right in my pantry or fridge. Next time I need to think ahead and mix up a batch of your marinade. I'm sure it's excellent. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I do the same thing Susan, Italian salad dressing is always on hand at our house. But, when I think ahead I use this recipe. Thanks!

  2. Sounds great Sam! For steak I tend to just slather the meat in Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and Montreal steak spice. I'll try your marinade next time though.

  4. I love the sound of that - and I usually have all of those ingredients to hand. I'll be giving that a try later - but I might use prok instead of lamb.

  5. I love a good marinade, especially if it is with ingredients I always have on hand and not something I have to think of ahead of time!

  6. Well now, we have used Olive oil and/or Worcestershire sauce, but never made an actual "recipe" for a marinade sauce. We will definitely have to try this. Awesome!
