Looking for Marinades for game, steak or chicken? Marinades can add a great taste to meats. They can be made up ahead of time and stored in the fridge in zip lock bags. Meats generally require at least one hour to soak up the flavors. Allowing for an overnight soak in your fridge makes flavors more robust. Turn the meat in the marinade several times to make sure that you soak all of the meat. Then grill or broil as you normally would.
