The Best Greek Marinade for Chicken, Steak & Pork
Grilled chicken & steak are both some of my absolute favorite foods. I could seriously eat it every day. I am ALWAYS on the lookout for new marinades to try! This Greek Marinade we tried last week is now at the top of my list of FAVORITE marinades! Oh my goodness!
I have FINALLY figured out the secret to why it was SO moist, tender, and juicy: There is no salt in the marinade. That’s right. NONE! We like to marinade our chicken for 24 hours and the salt in a marinade can draw out the juices. NOT GOOD! So with this marinade, you grill the chicken then add salt to taste after it is done. Trust me! You won’t even go back to salting your marinades again!
This recipe makes enough marinade for 2-3 lbs of meat. Feel free to double it as needed! It is delicious for steak and pork also! Can’t wait for y’all to try it! (This is the grill we have. We LOVE it!)
- 1 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 2 Tbsp dried oregano
- 2 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
Combine ingredients in a large ziplock freezer bag. Add chicken, pork or steak to bag and place bag in a large bowl in the fridge. Allow chicken or pork to marinade overnight. Steak only needs to marinade for a couple of hours. Grill and season with salt to taste & enjoy!
