Soy, Orange Juice, Red Wine Marinade

I love recipes that are 5 ingredients or less! Don’t we all need a ton of these in our repertoire? Much as I love creating an entree with as many layers of flavor as ingredients, there are many days when I’m overextended with little time for measuring and chopping. I’ve used this Soy, Orange Juice, Red Wine Marinade with flank steak as well as bone-in chicken thighs.  Most of us always have these ingredients on hand, plus it’s tasty enough for company and easy enough for a week night meal.

A Versatile Recipe

We grill a LOT of flank steak in the summer and sometimes I don’t have time to gather a multitude of ingredients for a marinade. With juice in the fridge, a partially drunk bottle of wine plus soy sauce in the pantry, it’s pretty much a no-brainer. Equal parts of each ingredient and, voila, you have your marinade. It can be used on beef, chicken, pork and even shrimp. It’s just that versatile! Note the different marinating times below.

Beef: 4 hours up to overnight
Chicken: 2-6 hours
Pork: 6 hours up to overnight
Shrimp with shells on: 1 hourSoy, Orange Juice, Red Wine Marinade | A versatile marinade that's perfect for flank steak, chicken thighs, shrimp and more!

Tip of the Day:

Tip of the Day: Lightly scoring (cutting into the top layer of the beef) across the grain of the flank steak allows for the marinade to permeate the meat a little deeper.

Instructions

  1. Mix orange juice, soy and red wine in a zip lock bag. Place steak into marinade. Seal bag and marinate overnight or at least 4 hours in refrigerator.
