Another vote for "in Canada the tough parts of the cow are called ground beef". That's why we mix so much stuff into our burgers and just put salt and black pepper on steaks.

Anyone got one for beer and not bbq sauce? My wife is not fond of the stuff, but I once had a beer marinated steak that was truly wonderful... Never tried it myself. It seems wrong to use a $10 bottle of beer on a steak, and, well, that's all I buy...




there's a place here in VA called Sweetwater Tavern, they make a "drunken ribeye" (marinated in their pale ale) that is to die for.

And for those that say marinades are not for them...I agree with your logic...that's the beauty of my recipe. The oil pretty burns off, the soy sauce adds some saltiness and the garlic and herbs add some flavor. When my steaks come off the grill, they look like they haven't been soaked in a bunch of crap.

I took the reins and did some chicken breasts tonight... I'm not a huge fan of chicken... usually I either marinate the crap out of them in Italian dressing, or I build up a candy coating of teriyaki on them while barbequing... decided to go in a different direction this time, and mix up a rub... I went with:

4 tsps chili powder
4 tsps paprika
2 tsps cumin
2/3 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp mustard seeds (ground)
1 tsp lemon pepper

should do about... oh... 4 breasts. Was pretty good, different than my normal "spices up front" way of cooking... nice and subdued.

For the paprika, I had some really nice Hungarian stuff from Folklorama's Hungary pavilion.

For the mustard, since I don't have a mortar and pestle, I just crack mustard seeds between a folded sheet of parchment with a marble rolling pin.

And why is it all in teaspoons? Easy, one measuring spoon to wash.

I finally cracked the chix breast code a couple of years ago. I've been taught forever that you always marinate chicken breasts then grill them on medium to low heat. After lots of experimentation I discovered that you can essentially treat them like steaks: You can season them with dry rubs then grill them on fairly high heat. You need to play with the time to get used to it but basically grill them 3 minutes on a side over high heat and press with your thumb to check doneness. Firm but not hard is done, just let them sit 5 minutes to complete cooking. The result is flavorful but still very moist. Most of the lower heat methods I've seen result in dry, chalky chicken breasts. Oops one important thing: Butterfly the breasts so they are even thickness before you season and grill them.

Yep. Butterflying is key. Without it, the middle of the breast will be moist but the edges will be crispy/dry.

For Mother's Day I marinated a couple of tri-tips for about 6 hours in some red wine, fresh crushed garlic, minced onion, chopped fresh oregano & parsley, a big shot of Pickapeppa sauce, some Lawrey's salt, and pepper. Grilled until about 130F, and let sit for 10 minutes. Sliced thin across the grain. Served with baked potatoes, corn on the cob, and a greek salad. All the moms were very happy, as were the dads.

Perhaps the mojitos helped the attitude.

Mojitos make everything better. Those cubans know how to drink.
