marinades to soften tough steak cuts
If your family
love steaks but you find that they are just too expensive
to fit within your budget, consider purchasing some of the
tougher steak cuts while they are on sale, and surprise your
family with steak dinner.
one thing many
do not realize is that even the toughest cuts of beef can
be made tender and juicy simply by marinating them. And the
trick is to not just marinate them for an hour or two before
grilling, but to marinate them overnight. When you marinate
them overnight, the marinade can do its work and turn your
tough steak into a great one.
You do not have
to buy the expensive jarred or packet mixes of marinade to
make it tender. There are plenty of easy to make marinade
recipes you can find online and nearly all of them will have
ingredients that you already have in your cupboard. the trick
is ensuring that the marinade has vinegar or wine in it, because
it is the acidic and citrus marinade ingredients there really
do the tenderizing.
So next time you
spot a good deal on a tough steak cut, surprise your family
with the marinated steak dinner. You can easily began marinating
the steaks the night before, getting them ready after your
family has gone to bed, so will be a true surprise when you
pull them out of the fridge to pop them on the grill.
