Marinades and Rubs
Marinades and rubs often help enhance–not mask–the delicious flavor of Harris Ranch beef. Marinades are seasoned liquid mixtures that add flavor and in some cases help tenderize beef. A tenderizing marinade must contain an acidic ingredient (lemon juice, yogurt, wine, vinegar) or a natural tenderizing enzyme found in fresh papaya, ginger, pineapple and figs.
A rub is a blend of seasonings, such as fresh or dried herbs and spices, used to flavor the surface of uncooked meats. Paste-type rubs often contain some oil, crushed garlic or mustard.
