Versatile Marinade

Ever have one of those days when you not sure what flavour you feel like.  This little recipe came about when I opened the cupboard and added a bit of this and a bit of that to make a marinade for chicken portions and decided it would work well with lamb, pork and beef too.

  1. I sent this home to Queen Suebar, she’s always got chicken wings & chicken drummies in the freezer and when she pulls them out, it’s marinating concoction time!!!!
    My Gran used to make these (gag worthy…. sorry Gran) stewed lamb neck chops with similar ingredients for the sauce…. I used to love, love, love the sauce – just not the lamb!!!

    • Aww how sweet darling Anna. Hope Queen Suebar enjoy it. I bet gran wouln’t bat an eyelid at you not like the lamb neck part of her scrumity sauce. Have a beautiful weekend hon. 🙂 xo
