Apple Mustard Marinade: This easy to make marinade not only adds flavor to your meat but tenderizes it too! This marinade works on any type of meat. The perfect solution to a tough piece of meat. Pair the marinated meat with a delicious Marinated Fruit Salad.
How to Make Apple Mustard Marinade
○ In a small jar, add the apple cider or juice, vinegar, mustard, oil, brown sugar, garlic, soy sauce, and pepper.
○ Shake to combine all the marinade ingredients.
○ Pour over meat, let meat marinade at least 4 hours.
Apple Mustard Marinade without apples? Yes, you read that right. For this marinade recipe I used apple cider vinegar and a good apple cider. You can’t marinade with apples. Using the apple cider will give you a more concentrated apple flavor. The vinegar adds an extra tang and helps with the tenderizing process.
Use Good Apple Cider
Whole Grain Mustard
With the delicious flavors of the apple cider and apple vinegar you also get the rough texture of coarse grain mustard and a wonderful deep flavor. I love the rustic look of the mustard.
SUBSTITUTE FOR COARSE MUSTARD: Dijon mustard is the best substitution for ground mustard because the flavor profile is similar. Use the ratio of 1 teaspoon ground mustard = 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard. Yellow Mustard or Brown Mustard: If you don’t have Dijon available, you can use yellow, brown, or even stone ground mustard. I DON’T RECOMMEND USING YELLOW MUSTARD—you can… but it won’t offer the same tangy flavor as the Dijon.
COARSE MUSTARD: Creole, Stone Ground, Whole Grain Dijon, Whole Grain Stout, Whole Grain Whisky
Place cleaned and dried chicken in a bowl (make sure the bowl is small enough so the marinade covers the meat), pour marinade over the chicken, cover with plastic wrap, place in the refrigerator and marinade at least 4 hours. Remove from marinade and cook (bake or grill). The chicken tastes fantastic cold and is perfect for picnics!
LEFTOVER CHICKEN: Sprinkle the leftover chicken on top of a salad. Lots of flavor already baked in!
