Marinade-a-palooza

With multiple proteins in the fridge this week and getting back into the spirit of CookWOD (big, efficient food prep sesh), I wanted to doctor up the meat beforehand so that I wouldn't have to think about being creative in the moment when it came time to cook! This is a great time saver because you get to simply throw the meat on the grill, in the oven, on the stove while gathering your side dishes and chow!

Below are three very different marinades made with items that you really ought to have stocked in your pantry. If you don't, put them on your shopping list!

Ginger Miso Marinade

I used this for one pound (1lb) of salmon, but I think it'd do just as well for chicken, pork, or beef.

What you need:

  • 2 Tbsp evoo

  • 2 Tbsp tamari

  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 Tbsp miso paste

  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 1-2 tsp fish sauce

  • 1" piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated/minced

What to do:

Place all ingredients directly into dish large enough to marinate protein and whisk together until well incorporated.

Balsamic Mustard Marinade

With pork chops often being dry once cooked, I allowed for two days marinating time, but one would've been fine. This would be equally tasty for chicken or fish, and it also excellent as a homemade salad dressing. Quantities below were sufficient for nine - ½ inch thick pork chops.

What you need:

  • 2 Tbsp evoo

  • 3-4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 1 Tbsp dijon or brown mustard

  • 1 tsp dried dill

  • ½ tsp kosher salt

What to do:

Place all ingredients in jar and shake, shake, shake or place directly into dish large enough to marinate protein and whisk together until well incorporated.

Creamy Tikka Marinade

While many marinades will suit various proteins, I'd stick with poultry on this one, as I'm not sure the yogurt will be a good fit with other types of meat. This was sufficient for four chicken quarters.

What you need:

  • 1 c. plain Greek yogurt*

  • 2 Tbsp ground cumin

  • 2 Tbsp ground coriander

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1" fresh ginger, minced or grated

  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Note: If dairy doesn't work for you, try canned coconut milk!

What to do:

Place all ingredients directly into dish large enough to marinate protein and whisk together until well incorporated.
