4 Simple Marinades That Add Serious Flavor

4 Simple Marinades That Add Serious Flavor

We all know the secret is in the sauce. Marinades can really make or break a meal, and since they make such a huge difference, we wanted to round up some of our all-time favorite flavor combinations — so you can say goodbye to bland and make every dinner a savory success.

  1. 1

    For a simple, can’t-fail combination, mix up some ranch and spicy brown mustard.

  2. 2

    Turns out, at-home peanut sauce is surprisingly simple to make. Start with some creamy peanut butter, mix in water, apple cider vinegar and some ranch seasoning, and there you have it. Thai-inspired flavor in no time.

  3. 3

    We’re especially proud of this one. The tartness of the orange juice concentrate balances out perfectly with the Dijon mustard and ranch dressing. Serve on its own or on top of a salad for a light meal on a hot day.

  4. 4

    Mushrooms have a meaty and earthy flavor that pairs outstandingly well with the robust flavor of this butter and balsamic-vinegar-based marinade.
