I found this marinade at Allrecipes.com the other day and it sounded like it had flavors we’d all enjoy, so I whipped some up for the bone-in pork strips I got on sale at Ken’s last week. It was nice because I had all the ingredients on hand and didn’t need anything out of the ordinary.
I used my Tupperware marinade container–I love that thing. Seals with no leaks, has a raised, textured bottom to let the marinade flow around all of the meat and looks nice in the fridge. The one thing I did differently, and I will do it this way every time, is to put the semi frozen pork with the marinade in the refrigerator for 48 hours. Yes, I said 48 hours.
You would not believe how wonderful this meat tastes. The flavor doesn’t stop either–it just keeps going. The long soak time let the marinade penetrate the pork strips all the way through, and after grilling to medium well, they were simply perfection.
I served them with cream of chicken noodles and green beans for a very hearty dinner on this cool, late summer evening.
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 3 tablespoons prepared mustard
- 2/3 cup lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
- garlic powder to taste
- 1 dash onion powder
- Use a flat container large enough to hold meat in a single layer. Combine oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and lemon juice. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Place meat in the marinade and turn to coat both sides.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, shaking or turning meat occasionally.
Easy and economical and full of flavor. It truly doesn’t get any better.
