Encore...Savory Beef and Chicken Marinade

Fire up the charcoal......  turn on the propane......  ignite the wood......

Whichever your grilling technique, the season is upon us!  The Midwest has had some beautiful weather this week, and we are elated to make the transition from indoor to outdoor cooking.  This marinade recipe is one that I posted when I first started writing my blog - it's so good it deserves an encore.  

Savory beef and chicken marinade
This one's a grilling staple for me and my Mom.  Neither of us really remembers where it first came from, but we love it.  My Mom started using it for fajitas back in the 70s when fajitas and tacos were becoming popular to make at home (think Michael Jackson - Don't Stop till You Get Enough).

We’ve used this marinade with chicken and beef - like flank steak.  It’s really versatile and has loads of flavor. 
Corn pudding - a perfect summer side dish
This time around, I'm including one of my favorite summertime sides - Corn Pudding.  It pairs really well with the chicken/beef recipe or any of your grilling specialties.

Enjoy, share and happy grilling!
Savory Chicken and Beef Marinade
¼ c. red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon summer savory
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dry mustard
½ teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons steak sauce

Whisk all ingredients together.  Place chicken or beef in a plastic, sealable bag and pour in the marinade.  Marinate for 2-6 hours.

It's all about the seasonings...
Corn Pudding
1 15 oz. can corn, drained
2 tablespoons flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 c. cheddar cheese
1 c. milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Combine corn, flour, eggs, sugar, salt, pepper and cheese.  Warm milk and add to mixture.  Pour into a buttered casserole and top with breadcrumbs and melted butter.  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  This recipe can easily be doubled to share the love with more friends.....

Happy Grilling!
