Simplicity is sometimes all you need for a great dish.
I whipped up a week-night marinade for a short but effective soak of some pork. We eat a lot of pork in our house because we like it, it is readily available/inexpensive in our local store and it is actually often leaner than beef. But this marinade would work wonders on chicken and I suspect fish – just cut back the marinade time for fish.
Marinated meat and veggies on the grill is simplicity at it’s best!
Just use whatever you have hanging around. I tossed these veggies in a little Olive oil and Soy Sauce; then I added lots of chopped fresh herbs from this year’s garden. Have I mentioned that I am LOVING fresh sage?!
1/4 Cup Olive oil
1/2 Tablespoon Chinese five spice (Another adventure of mine with this spice here.)
1/4 Teaspoon Chili flakes (more if you like it spicy)
1 Teaspoon Kosher salt
1 Cup Orange Juice + the zest if you are juicing fresh.
1 Large clove garlic, crushed
I used this for approximately 1 3/4 lb of meat.
