3 Unique Sauce and Marinade Recipes For Your Grilled Meat

While grill meat seasoned with just salt and pepper is delicious as it is, using a marinade to cook or serving sauce on the side makes a whole lot of difference. Marinades, especially those that have vinegar or lemon, help tenderize the meat by breaking down proteins. They also keep it moist and juicy on top of adding flavor.

So if you’re planning to grill soon, these unique sauce and marinade recipes will surely bring life to your grilled meat!

Lemon and Spices Steak Marinade

What you need:

  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup soybean oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup black pepper
  • 1/2 cup garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

In a large bowl, mix together lemon juice, soybean oil, onion, garlic, black pepper, garlic salt, soy sauce and white sugar. Place your steak (preferably tri-tip) on a re-sealable plastic container and pour the mixture all over it. Seal and refrigerate for at least 6 hours before grilling. Discard marinade.

Orange and Beer Combo

What you need:

  • 1 orange, thinly sliced (keep peel on)
  • 4 cloves garlic, halved and smashed
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup light-colored lager-style beer
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Arrange half of the orange slices, half of the garlic and half of the onion slices at the bottom of a wide and shallow glass baking dish. Place your steak on top then sprinkle with kosher salt and black pepper. Scatter the remaining orange, garlic and onion on top of the meat then pour in beer and soy sauce. Cover the dish with plastic wrap. Marinate at room temperature for at least 1 hour or in the refrigerator up to overnight.

Herbed Sour Cream Thick Steak Sauce

What you need:

  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 small bunch tarragon, chopped
  • 1 cup creme fraiche
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon capers

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat and cook the shallot for 5 minutes. Add the white wine vinegar and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Stir in creme fraiche, tarragon, Dijon mustard and capers. Lower the heat and cook for another couple of minutes until simmering.
