There's nothing quite like laying some beautiful meat in a really tasty marinade.
The flavours infuse right into the meat and give it that extra deliciousness that says 'Come back for more'.
Marinades need a little time to work their magic, so, let your meat wallow overnight or for a few hours at least.
