Balsamic Marinade Recipe

Balsamic Marinade Recipe

The taste, the punch, the twang....this simple marinade has it all! It's so good, you'll be tempted to eat it with a spoon.


Marinades are perfect for pan-searing or grilling your favorite cut of meat. They add incredible aroma and a heightened surface flavor that keep you coming back for more. 

The trick is letting the marinade soak in long enough to impart it's delicious, caramelized flavor...and so that the salt and acid can work together to both season and tenderize the meat. Depending on your preference, let it marinate a few hours (minimum) to a few days before cooking.  

Our Garlic and Herb Balsamic Marinade is savory, bright and herbaceous. We recommend using this for a nice steak, but you can use it for any cut of beef or pork...or try it with grilled vegetables!
