Freezing Meats in Marinade

Welcome to the first installment of in 80 seconds!!

I share quick tips and benefits to freezing meats in marinade. I can always tell a difference with the juiciness of the meat if it has been frozen in the marinade. BTW, this is what I normally look like everyday, minus the apron of course!

Any other tips on freezing meats in marinade? Have you tried it?

Also, I'll share the homemade marinade recipe too! I took a few pictures that day and just haven't posted them yet.


Do you have a video to share? Please link directly to the post with your vlog (rather than your homepage). Be sure to include the description of the vlog and the name of your blog.

Don't forget to tweet your post with #80sectv. I will be tweeting and retweeting with that hash tag as well!

    It wouldn’t let me view the 80 sec video it says it’s private.

  2. Terri K. on January 6, 2011 at 8:28 am

    When I click on the video, I get a message that it is private?

    I get the same message.

    I’d love to watch the video, but it’s saying it’s private. Am I doing something wrong, or is it a setting on your end? Sorry, I’m new to all this blogging & You Tube stuff! ;)

      Sorry ALL!! I actually updated it to be public and then I must have forgot to hit save. Nothing like coming out with a bang :)

    I got the “private message” when I clicked on it in Google Reader, but when I went to your site it worked fine.
    I’ve never marinated before freezing, but think it’s a great idea and will try it out.

    Couldn’t hear you. Sorry. But I think I got the idea. Waiting for marinade recipe, too.

    I’ve been marinating meat and freezing for years, it’s a great idea to have seasoned meat waiting for you at the end of the day.
    For those of you who wish to marinate, you can pretty much use any of the free/cheap salad dressings that we get after coupons :) or you can use any dry seasonings (onion soup mix, mccormicks, taco seasoning. etc) + small amt of oil + an acid (vinegar, lemon juice) to create a marinade. Enjoy!
