Marinate Your Meat


Why we marinate our meat before we grill? The answer is to be more tasteful. We know that by marinating meat it will absorbed all the flavor from any seasoning or herbs that we put into it. For your information there is more to it. The Journal of Food Science recently published research from Kansas State University (Manhattan) revealing that marinating meat may decrease the cancer-forming compounds (heterocyclic amines, or HCA) that are produced during grilling by more than 70%. Choose marinades or make your own with spices and herbs. The antioxidants help decrease the HCAs formed during grilling, and you'll be cooking more healthfully. Also adding more flavor to your food in the process.
