Red Meat Marinade Recipe

How to Make Beef Steak and Roast Sauce:

Red Meat Marinade is a wonderful recipe that was shared by Alleta Huston of Newberg, OR.  This is the best recipe for marinating ribs, and steaks.  It is an easy-to-make recipe that adds a full rich flavor to any cut of beef.  Any good red meat marinade should have a good kick to it, usually an acid that helps to tenderize the beef.

This recipe utilizes fresh lemon juice as the acid.  Lemon juice is a great tenderizer and always leaves a freshness to the flavor of the meat.  When marinating, be sure to refrigerate the meat if it will be over 20 minutes before cooking.  Whole steaks and roasts can marinate in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours.  If your meat is cubed reduce the time to two or three hours.
