Making Merry or Making Mari~Nade

Well, the music was blasting, the girls were cookin', and out came three delicious marinades for this Saturday's BBQ Extravaganza at the Grass Valley Farmer's Market.

Girls in the Kitchen

We made three very different, yummy marinades... all for your enjoyment! New York's, Top Sirloins, London Broils and Korean Style Short Ribs -
All with unique family stories and all delicious!!!

Marinade #1 is a Steak Marinade for New Yorks and Top Sirloins that Phil and Alicia used with a Tri-Tip on their first home date BBQ. It must of went well back then because they got married and they keep on cookin'. Now it's 25 years later and Alicia's been perfecting the family recipe for this savory sensation. The ingredients include a base of Cabernet Sauvignon, Lea & Perrin's Worcestershire Sauce, Olive Oil, Crushed Garlic, and lots of love... the secret's in the love!

Marinade #2 is a sweet basting and dipping sauce for the veteran barbecuer with a London Broil. This marinade is cooked a little to melt down some brown sugar into a delectable sauce that requires top-secret clearance to uncover... Or a really nice email request to Alicia.

Marinade #3 is a Family Favorite for the barbecuing of Korean-Style Short Ribs. This Asian concoction of soy sauce, sesame oil, crushed garlic, ginger, and chopped green onions wins the Family Friendly Farm's Marinade competition year after year, and is currently in first place once again for this week's competition at the local Farmer's Markets.

Final results of the Marinade Competition will occur at the Grass Valley Farmer's Market (North Star House) this Saturday 6/4/16 between 8:00 - 12:30, where we'll be cooking samples of all three of these Beef Cuts with their accompanying Marinades... Hope to see you there for the taste testing and yummy fun. We'll make sure to post the results afterwards.

We planted 300 Olive Trees several years ago, but it could have felt like 3,000 if it weren't for nice and sunny days, along with nice and sunny helpers.
