Delicious marinade recipes that are simple and easy

delicious marinade recipes

Nothing says summer like dinner on the grill. While you can grill without a marinade and still end up with a delicious meal, marinading your meat and/or veggies before grilling can amp up the flavor and tenderness of your meal by a thousand (especially if you are buying cheaper, tougher cuts of meat). There are so many easy and delicious marinade recipes available nowadays. So many in fact, that it can actually be overwhelming when looking through recipe forums like All Recipes or Pinterest.

To prevent PMSM, or perfect marinade search meltdown, I have compiled a list of the most popular marinade recipes by food category. I put ** next to the recipes I personally tested and love, but all of these marinades are great for taking more affordable cuts of meat to the next level of yumminess.

Easy & delicious marinade recipes

There is no point in buying inexpensive meat then soaking it in a complicated marinade that calls for a ton of ingredients, or ingredients you’ll probably never use again (candied ginger anyone?).  All of the marinades below consist of six or fewer ingredients and call for everyday items that most of you may already have in your pantry!
