Most cuts taste great with just a pinch of salt and pepper, but take your steak or roast to new flavor heights with a marinade or rub. Use our marinade and rub tips and recipes to help take your next meal to another level.
There are two reasons you might want to use a marinade: to help add flavor or to tenderize. While the two different types of marinades may contain similar ingredients, the key is the length of marinating time. If you’re just looking to add flavor, you only need to marinate for 15 minutes to 2 hours. If you’re looking to tenderize cuts, you’ll want to marinate for 6 to 24 hours.
Steak rubs and roast beef rubs are seasoning blends applied to the surface of beef like roasts, steaks and burgers. These quick mixtures add flavor to beef, but do not tenderize.
