In our constant pursuit to provide the top savory recipes available, the MSGdish Team found this delish-sounding meat marinade recipe on Recipes Wikia and wanted to share it before we even have a chance to whip it up. Sounds like it would be excellent for any kind of meat — beef, roast, chicken, pork, ribs and shrimp. And now that it’s football season, why not experiment with new and different marinades to impress fellow fans at a tailgate or in front of your own TV?
