Garlic marinade

    5 min

    This easy marinade goes well with any type of meat. It gives lots of flavour, and of course the longer the meat marinades, the more flavourful it will be.

    Very quick & easy to make.  -  24 Apr 2009


    I used Fivebrigs recipes in the past and none have ever failed me. Again this one's a keeper. I used this during Christmas for our 18 lb turkey, it was marvelous! I brined the turkey 2 days before cooking it, then made the marinade and added sazon to it, rubbed it all over the turkey (under all of it's skin and body cavity) fridged overnite until ready to roast. I put it in a turkey bag slowly cooked it at 300F for 3 hrs, during which time I rotated and basted it every HR. Once it was ready I opened the bag to let the turkey crisp a bit and it came out so perfect. No need to carve it with a knife. It literally fell off of the bone. It was so moist and tender, everyone loved it. MMMMMMMM!  -  28 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Buen Provecho! Gracias Fivebrigs, this is excelente. I added sazon to this and prepped a whole chicken as if I were cooking a turkey and baked at 275-300 for 2+ hours until cooked and the chicken was moist(it fell off the bone)and had a wonderful flavor. I will surely use this again and again. Thanks  -  15 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
