One-For-All Marinated Beef

"I use this great marinade not just for beef, but for everything I grill-from pork chops to chicken," notes Sue Sauer of Deer River, Minnesota. "The marinade's main ingredient-orange juice- is both low in calories and a good tenderizer."

    This marinade was great! I used one of the toughest cuts of meat and ended up with an amazingly tender and tasty dinner! I didn’t have any brown sugar nor fresh garlic. I did use garlic powder. It was the best London broil I have ever had!

    My husband and I's favorite beef marinade. Easy and super flavorful. He likes to drizzle hot sauce right before he eats it too.

    I upped all the ingredients & added Worcestershire sauce & more garlic. Left a London broil style steak in the marinade for 2 days. Nice mellow flavor, needs garlic or a punch of hot sauce. Meat was flavorful, juicy & delicious. Very good on the grill.

    I used this for grilled boneless, skinless chicken breasts and they turned out tender and yummy! Next I'm trying it with grilled bone-in pork chops. -Lori in WI.
