Chicken and Steak Marinade

With my husband's family coming from Paraguay Barbeques are a common occurance (called Asado) when you have company. A lot of people have large cattle ranches so steak is plentiful. Here for us it is a treat. I hope that you like the recipes. We have and so has our company.

  1. Say, I've been looking for a good marinade with a bit of 'kick' That looks good. Something I have never known...where does one find liquid smoke? Do tell. Anyway...that is yummy and goes so well with the potatoes and yams. Great shots! I am trying this this weekend for sure. Thanks Charlotte.

  2. you find liquid smoke in the same isle with worchestire sauce and the like. it comes in a similiar shaped bottle too...there is hickory and mesquite....whichever you choose is fine.

  3. Hmmm...well, if I could find Betty r's parchment paper...I can do this too! Ah ha..sounds like a post picture down the grocery aisle!

  4. I have all these ingredients, even the liquid smoke. . I can't wait to make this marinade. It looks fantastic.
