#Best #Beef #Marinade of  #Summer2014So now I bet you are wondering what this secret ingredient is? Did you guess the old Baking Soda routine? If you did…The answer is no. We did not use that… Primarily Baking Soda has been used by many Asian Restaurants in Stir-fry recipes. I have found that the meat texture becomes extremely sponge-like in larger cuts of meat. This is not an ideal method for what we are doing today.

#Best #Beef #Marinade of  #Summer2014So by now you have to be dying to know what we have done; I’m not going to keep you lovely folks guessing much more, I promise. Below you will find our recipe for The Best Quick Beef Marinade. It’s packed with fantastic flavors and perfect for grilling!

#Best #Beef #Marinade for London Broil of  #Summer2014A combination of Olive Oil, Pineapple Juice, White Rice Vinegar, Soy Sauce, Honey, Minced Garlic, and Minced ginger all work together in unison to not only speed up marinade time but enhance the flavor! Pineapples and the juice have been used for centuries to Quickly marinade meats! It works so fast you do not need to marinade for long periods. As a matter of fact if you leave it too long it almost works too well. You will want to keep your marinade time at 30-45 minutes! How fast is that?

Best Quick Beef Marinade

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/8 cup white rice vinegar
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons minced fresh ginger


  1. In a glass dish, using a small whisk combine olive oil, pineapple juice, white rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, and minced ginger thoroughly.
  2. Pour over beef cuts such as London Broil, Flank Steaks, Skirt Steaks etc.
  3. Marinate tough cuts of meat  for 30-45 minutes.

Notes: This marinade is used for more tough cuts of meat. I would not use on meats cuts such as Prime Rib, Porterhouse, T-Bones, or Strip Steaks.  The acidity and enzymes in Pineapple will cause a breakdown in these meat cuts.

  1. Oh, how I want to sink my teeth into that nice, juicy and perfectly prepared rare steak! Hubby and I love a good slab of meat and are always looking for simple marinades. I’ll be sure to check this one out!


  2. Best Quick Beef Marinade sounds perfect for this weekend! This looks like it’s a great recipe for tender meats for sure!


  3. You know I have heard about the baking soda before, and let me tell you it was an epic fail for taste. I have heard Pineapple and Papaya Juice are great for marinading. I am also glad you disclosed what would happen if marinaded too long. I don’t think people understand that pineapple can really work a number on meat if not used for short times.


    • I am not fond of the baking soda method.I don’t think it’s a well known fact that the power of pineapple is priceless! Best Beef Marinade contains pineapple juice. Pineapple juice contains, an enzyme found mostly in the pineapple’s stem Bromelain. Not only will Bromelain degrade the meat’s tough fibers, it can cause the meats to become pulp like. You will not want to marinade for long periods. 45 minutes is more then sufficient. Thanks for dropping by!
