For the budget minded:
Wipe wth meat with damp paper towel, place meat in covered tuperware container or oblong pyrex type caserole dish. Pour 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar over top, sprinkle Mrs Dash or fresh graound pepper on top. Flip meat over and repeat other side. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour, 4 hrs if really tough. (Could also place in large ziptop bag). I will add on occasion 1/2 Italian Bottled dressing from dollar type store (save the good stuff for salad). P.S. Do not add salt as makes meat tough.
To tenderize pork and enhance flavor, mix 1 cup dark brown sugar , 1 tbsp Gulden's mustard with 1 cup of hot water in large zip top bag--add your pork chops or roast then add another 2 cups hot water or until bag full; remove excess air and sit in refrig for at least two hours.
Cook meat as desired. YUMMY
Well, I have to tell ya....the dollar type dressings (caines and ken's steak house..make some excellent dressings that I would be pleased to serve on my salads
but I agree....but if you go budget dressing...you want to make sure it tastes good or your meat won't taste good either. The idea of brown sugar, mustard and water sounds yummy though.
Funny how every one loves to marinade with Italian dressing and prefers to let the meat marinade for at least 4 hours or over night! :chuckle
MArinading with Teriyaki sauce is a good idea too. Lawery's makes some excellent bottled marinades.....from citrus, to garlicy to asian......wonderful and reasonably priced.
If you can find Speidie's sauce in y our grocery, that is another excellent marinade, too.
Happy grilling and let us know how things turned out .
