Marinating Tips: Never marinade foods in metal containers for extended lengths of time (1 hr. plus). The acids in foods can react with metal, causing an unpleasant taste. Instead, use glass, ceramic, plastic zip lock bags or plastic containers for marinating.
Meat Safety Tip: To reduce the risk of spoiling, store meat in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook. Never thaw or marinade meat at room temperature, especially in warm climates.
Beef Steaks: Marinade 1 hour, for cuts up to 1/2 inches thick. For thicker steaks, add 30 minutes marinating time for each 1/4 inch of thickness.
Pork Steaks: Marinade at least 2 hours or more, and if you prefer baste with our marinade while cooking to keep meat juicy.
Hamburger: Marinating is not necessary, just pour on ground meat and grill.
Chicken Breast Fillet:Marinade an 8 oz. chicken breast 30 to 45 minutes. Cooking time 8 to 10 minutes on a hot grill.
Venison Steaks or Chops:Marinade 2 hours, marinade whole loins or tenderloins 6 to 8 hours.
Deer Jerky: Marinade 1/4 inch strips of venison at least 2 hours before dehydrating.
Chef’s Request Steak Marinade and Buckhead Wildlife Marinade are also great on many other meats, such as wild game or waterfowl. Chef’s Request was especially developed for the “True Steak Lover” and Buckhead was developed especially for deer, but works well on anything you can put on the grill, in the skillet, crock pot, oven and even on the George Foreman.
If you try it on other game and come up with a good recipe we would love to hear from you so we can share it with other wild game lover customers.
