4 marinades for pork, lamb/chicken, beef, and vegetables
We soften and add flavour to meat and vegetables using marinades. Remember: raw meat, fish and chicken may carry harmful bacteria into the marinade. Therefore, put the marinade in the fridge, and don't use any leftover marinade as a sauce, unless you boil it well. Raw sauces should be made using ingredients that have not come in contact with uncooked meat and chicken. Finally, it's best to marinate in glass or plastic, not metal, dishes.
