Quick and easy steak tip marinade

First, you’ll want to select a premium grade cut of steak from your local butcher shop.  Don’t opt for the cheap cut as you’ll get what you pay for.  Once you’ve purchased your steak, plan on marinating the beef overnight with the following ingredients:

  • ½ cup of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup of Italian dressing
  • 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce

These measurements are based on two pounds of tips and should be adjusted accordingly. Grill low and slow to ensure the most flavorful result!




Finger licking good grilled chicken

If you’re opting for chicken at your gathering, the following marinade will leave no leftovers behind.  Mix all of the ingredients and marinate overnight.

  • ¾ cups of soy sauce
  • ½ cup of Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup of red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of dry mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of fresh parsley
  • 1 cup of EVOO




Grilled salmon for the win

Perhaps your crowd is a fan of the ocean, if so, this salmon marinade in combination with freshly steamed veggies is a guaranteed win!

  • ¼ cup of EVOO
  • ½ cup of reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • Freshly grated ginger

Unlike the previous two marinades, this one can be applied to the salmon while your grill heats! Without the need for hours of preparation, this recipe will save you time but have everyone think you slaved in the kitchen for hours!
