If you follow my channel on Youtube (My Channel) then you may have seen me creating this recipe live. I didn’t follow any recipe but instead followed the 3 principles of a meat marinade: oil + acid + flavouring. Every good marinade will have these 3 components. Please check the video out as I explain it in more detail.
I used my handy Bosch Vitastyle Mixx2Go blender to make the marinade and it worked perfectly. No need for those huge blenders anymore for small jobs like this.
Try marinate your meat the day before you cook it. I would highly recommend you braai or grill the meat but you can also use this as a basting sauce for roasts.
