Wine Marinades

Red and White Wine Marinades

   This Marinade can be made using either red or white wine. Red wine is used for marinating beef and lamb and white wine can be used for marinating poultry.  Buy a wine that you enjoy. If it's not a wine you would drink you probably wouldn't like it in your marinade either. You will need
  • 1 bottle red or white wine about 3 1/2 cups
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 5 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 2-3 cloves fresh garlic-minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme, tarragon,  or rosemary (or use a combination of all 3)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  In a large bowl combine all of the above ingredients and whisk together until well blended.  This will yield approximately 5 cups of marinade, enough for a large whole chicken, a large beef roast, or a whole leg of lamb.  Larger roasts and whole roasting chickens may be marinated under refrigeration for up to 3 days for the most flavor.
