Amazing Marinade!

Some friends had us over for dinner and we had grilled flat iron steak that had been marinaded in this was delicious and amazing!  The recipe is from all recipes (dot) com and you can go to the original recipe by copying and pasting the following into your browser:

We have used the marinade on chicken and it is equally good on the chicken as it was on the steak!  For chicken, I changed the servings from 8 - 6 and it was the perfect amount.

Fresh basil instead of dried basil makes it extra yummy!  Enjoy!

1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons dried basil
1 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (optional)
1 teaspoon dried minced garlic (optional)

1. Place the soy sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, basil, parsley, and pepper in a blender. Add hot pepper sauce and garlic, if desired. Blend on high speed for 30 seconds until thoroughly mixed.

2. Pour marinade over desired type of meat. Cover, and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Cook meat as desired.

Yes, the title of this recipe is a bit weird, but they Barbecups are good.

3/4 lb. Ground beef
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 T. Minced onion
2 T. Brown sugar
1 can of refrigerated biscuits (not the grand size)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef with onion. Drain grease if needed. Stir in brown sugar. Seperate dough into biscuits, put one in each ungreased muffin cup, pressing dough up sides to form cups. Spoon meat mixture into cups. Sprinkle each with about 1T. Of shredded cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. I usually spray the muffin cups lightly because I never believe them when they say ungreased.

You could probably use the grand size biscuits but adjust the cooking time.

I have also used taco meat to make Mexicups. :)

I have made these ahead of time and put them on the freezer. I put them straight in the oven from the freezer, covered with foil for about half the time and then check them to determine when to uncover them so the cheese melts but the biscuits don't get too brown.
