Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
6 garlic cloves, coarsely chipped
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more for seasoning
6 rosemary sprigs, coarsely chopped
Coarse Sal

1. Whisk together vinegar, oil, garlic and pepper in a nonreactive bowl. Scatter half the rosemary in a shallow nonreactive dish; arrange meat on top. Cover with marinade; rub gently into meat. (I usually just use a zip lock baggy for this instead of the nonreactive dish). Cover; refrigerate for several hours or over night, turning meat occasionally.

2. Before cooking, remove meat from refrigerator and let it come to a cool room temperature. Wipe off bits of garlic and rosemary; discard marinade. Season with salt and pepper and cook as desired.

I believe I found this recipe is a Martha Stewart magazine....or maybe Bon Appetite, I'm not sure. Anyway, You can use it on steaks, chicken or pork (2 pounds of meat). When we go camping, I put this in a freezer bag along with the frozen meat into the ice chest. As the meat thaws, it is also marinading.

Note: I don't season my steak with salt as it tends to make it a little tough

A dash of local for every season
