3 Easy Marinades to Make at Home

Posted on 15 Apr 2016 by Anna Scott
As you’ll soon see with our latest Campbells Meat promo codes, Waitrose voucher codes and Morrisons discount codes, there’s really no need to buy ready-made marinades in bottles when it’s so much easier and significantly cheaper to make your own at home. Many of the ingredients here are ones that you’ll have tucked away in your larder or fridge most of the year round, but if you need to stock up, we’ve included some essential online savings, as well as discounts on that oh-so-essential meat. There’s not really much point in making a marinade without it!


For a successful marinade, you need some sort of oil element, something acidic to add bite, and an ingredient that’s sweet or salty (or sometimes both of these). You can source all of these ingredients using one of our Waitrose discount vouchers or Morrisons promotional codes, and ideally you should leave these marinades on overnight, but if in a rush, or cooking on a whim, a minimum of 20 minutes should do.


Lemon, Garlic and Thyme

This one is perfect for white meats, especially pork chops before you put them on the griddle pan, or diced pork for kebabs. All you need is 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the juice and zest from half a lemon, 1-2 crushed garlic cloves, the leaves from a bunch of fresh thyme sprigs and some salt and pepper. Thoroughly mix the lot together and then evenly baste over your meat.




Sweet Chilli and Lime

You might think that using sweet chilli sauce is cheating a bit, but it certainly saves a great deal of time, and most importantly, is absolutely delicious. Like the first marinade, this works best with white meats, especially chicken for stir fries or kebabs, but is also great with salmon. All you have to do is mix together 1 tablespoon sesame oil (or sunflower oil if you don’t have this to hand), 2-3 tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and the juice from half a lime. If you prefer a saltier, sweeter or more sour flavour, then adjust the amounts according to taste.


Honey, Soy and Garlic

Another Asian-inspired one, this works with pretty much any meat, but tastes fantastic on crispy beef strips. Mix together 1 tablespoon of sesame or sunflower oil, 2 tablespoons of runny honey and 2 crushed garlic cloves then baste.
