How to marinate meat

Marinating the meat is one of the key stages in preparing this dish. You can also simply brush all the elements with oil, salt and pepper and aromatic herbs, but you will need more time for a perfect result.

First of all, let's start from the basics: the perfect marinade has rules, and more precisely it must be composed of a fatty element (which is usually oil), a spicy element (therefore aromatic herbs, pepper, or in the most extreme cases ginger or other exotic spices) and an acidic element (such as lemon juice, or white or red wine).

  1. Mix these elements well and add the salt, then immerse the meat in the juices and massage it to let all the flavors penetrate well inside.
  2. Finally, close it in a container and leave it in the refrigerator.
  3. The more it marinates, the better it will be. For chicken, 2 hours will be enough, while for pork, beef and veal it is better to leave it from 4 hours onwards .

Preparation of grilled meat

Now that you know all the secrets to having soft, tender and tasty meat, let's move on to cooking.

  1. There is only one rule: the grill must literally be burning.
  2. Place kebabs, chops, sausages and chicken slices on the grill, basting all elements with the marinade.
  3. Check the cooking, being careful not to burn anything.
  4. Once the meat is ready, arrange all the pieces on a tray and serve immediately. Enjoy your meal!

Obviously, everyone has their own times: let's see them in detail!

If you didn't buy them but made them yourself, make sure you didn't make too big pieces, and that you make them all the same size .
