KITCHEN TRICKS: This Flavor-Packed Marinade Only Takes 1 Minute To Prepare
This all-around marinade makes boring dishes flavorful and exciting!
If all the quarantine food trends that emerged in the past few months are anything to get by, we can safely say that this period has encouraged many of us to experiment in the kitchen.
But recipes don’t have to be elaborate to be delicious. Sometimes, all we need to do is to take an old favorite and upgrade it with a simple trick.
Case in point: fried and grilled meats, and stir-fry dishes.
They’re simple and easy to cook but, to make them really shine, you will need a good marinade. Marinades do wonders for these types of dishes, so it is important to get the ideal balance of flavors.
To get you started, check out this simple marinade recipe from Knorr, which needs only four ingredients. It takes about a minute to prepare and is enough for one kilo of meat.
Use this recipe to marinate your choice of meat cuts for as quick as 10 to 15 minutes, if you're in a rush, to let the flavor will seep in. For best results, soak for hours or overnight.
