How to marinade your favorite cuts of meat.
I’ve been marinating in Judaism my entire life and it is a huge part of my identity. Anyone who knows me knows it’s just in me, it’s who I always have been. For some, it takes time for the marinade to penetrate and tenderize, it’s all about finding the right mix of ingredients. Just like meat. Marinades work best on cuts of meat that are less than an inch thick as marinades only penetrate a maximum of ¼ inch on a piece of meat. Skirt steak, Hangar steak, and any thinly cut meats do excellent in marinades. Thicker cuts of meat do better with a spice rub, if the Judaism you know hasn’t become part of you yet, keep looking and reading, until you find what works for you, in the meantime, here is how to marinate meat.
