4. Try wine in a marinade
Speaking of acidic ingredients, did you know acid in a marinade helps tenderize the exterior of meat? Next time you are creating a marinade, try adding wine to your concoction. A wine-based marinade adds excellent flavor to meat, poultry, and seafood while also keeping the dish moist.
Raising the Bar’s favorite red wine marinade is the perfect way to utilize the last little bit of red wine that may not be as good the next day. Combine red wine, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and minced garlic. Pour the mixture into a zip-lock bag with your filet and refrigerate the marinade and steaks for 4 to 6 hours. Lastly, prepare the steaks to your liking and enjoy!
