All-Purpose Herb Marinade

Bathing ingredients in a marinade for even just 10 minutes can dramatically up the flavor. This all-purpose recipe works deliciously with any cut of beef, chicken, pork, seafood, or even vegetables. Marinate seafood for 30 minutes; meat can be marinated for 2 hours or up to overnight. Reserve a little bit of fresh marinade to brush over meat before serving.
