Happy Fourth of July! A lot of people are going to be spending time outside today, enjoying the company of friends and family and gathered around the grill. This link give you information about how to grill safely and healthily.
This is my favorite meat marinade recipe. It works equally well for beef or chicken.
Mira's Meat Marinade
1/3 C. olive oil
1/3 C. ketchup
1/4 C. rice wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic minced
2 T. tamari sauce
1 large sprig rosemary
stab meat with a fork before soaking in marinade
let marinate at least 6 hours before serving (in the fridge), turning as often as you remember
(I have left this as long as 24 hours and it is absolutely delicious)
pull the meat out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you start the grill so it can come to room temperature
this will help the meat cook more evenly
