Thank you for a great Carmel Winter Farmers Market season! We will see you beginning on May 4th at the Carmel Farmers Market and the Fishers Farmers Market!

Beef or Chicken Kabob Marinade

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of preparing a variety of freezer meals for Kyle's grandparents in one of my friend's 'power cooking' classes (learn more at Eat Cheap! with Trista Hill).  When prepping the meat that I needed for the class, I inadvertently pulled a few too many packages of steaks from the freezer, so that (conveniently) will be our dinner later this evening.  Below is a simple marinade recipe that goes especially well with beef, but would also be delicious on chicken. 

Ingredients: Yield: ~3/4 c, which would be sufficient for ~2 lbs of meat
1/3 c soy sauce
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 TBSP fresh ginger (peeled and finely chopped)
1/8 c firmly-packed brown sugar
1/8 c rice wine vinegar
1/8 c canola oil
1/8 c orange juice


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl; whisk together until well-blended.
  2. Pour over meat, cover (or transfer to a Ziplock-style bag) and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 8 to 36 hours (beef) or 1 to 8 hours (chicken).
