Orange Marm-inade

July 1st, 2009 by Justin | Comments Off on Orange Marm-inade | Filed in Marinades, Sauces

To be honest, it’s been a good while since I made this so the ingredients are a little fuzzy, but I think it’s about right.  Turns out very rich to be a very rich marinade, good for red meats.


  • 2/3 small jar orange marmalade
  • 4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp garlic powder
  • 4 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp ginger powder
  • 2 tsp seasoning salt
  • 2 tsp sage

Mix and go!  I scored my steaks to allow the larger chunks of goodness from the marmalade to get trapped in between and to increase the surface area of meat that could absorb the flavor of the marinade.  Also, scoring will keep your meat incredibly tender if you’re forced in to pan frying your meat like I was (it was a late dinner).

Marinates 3 to 4 steaks.

Bastard Sauce

May 24th, 2009 by Justin | Comments Off on Bastard Sauce | Filed in Marinades, Sauces

I came up with a pretty descent barbecue sauce/marinade the last time I lit up the barbie.  This was used on pork chops (the smallest ever), but will also work well on other meats, especially chicken.   Just don’t burn the shit out of it like I did.


  • Barbecue sauce (as a base…because cheating is easier)
  • Worcestershire
  • Ketchup
  • Garlic powder
  • Red vinegar
  • Black pepper
  • Green Tabasco
  • Oregano
  • Dash of salt.

Listed in order of most to least used. You figure it out.
