Easy-Peasy Universal Meat Marinade

Hello, friends!  Thank you for visiting my blog!

Although Memorial Day to me is mostly a day of reverence, it is a national holiday during which we also get together as a family and barbecue. The following is a meat marinade I'd like to share from my blog Parsimonious Pabulum.  I hope you enjoy the post.

Universal Meat Marinade
The backyard barbecue epitomizes summer for my family and I. Even my ten year old has gotten into the act by creating his own signature sauce. Great fun. 

The following marinade is one we use every time. What I love about this marinade is that it is universal.  It can be used on steaks, Chicken, ribs, and chops.  It is also very easy and takes no time. 

You will need:
Lemon juice
1 medium Onion
1 whole Garlic
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Seasoned salt
Fresh cilantro (coriander)

Begin by peeling and slivering the garlic. Peel and slice the onion. There is no need to chop the onion; large pieces are perfectly fine. After rinsing, remove stems from cilantro. Season the meat with the garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt and pepper. I call it coloring the meat...I sprinkle an even amount across the meat. Flip and repeat.  Place meat into a large bowl.  Douse with an ample amount of lemon juice. Add onions, garlic, and cilantro. Here is where you get in and get your hands dirty. Mix all ingredients together in the bowl using your hands. It's somewhat like kneading.  Make sure all the meat gets covered with the lemon juice, vegetable, and herb mixture.  Place in refrigerator and allow to sit. I prefer for the meat to marinade at least an hour, but if you are in a time-crunch, the minimal amount of time is one half hour.  
This will give your meat such a wonderful flavor that you may not even need to use sauce. (We love yours, though buddy!)  :)
