Pork marinades

Marinades are typically a combination of oil, herbs, and an acidic ingredient like wine, vinegar, soy sauce or citric juice.

Marinades tenderise and flavour meat; and they work best when left in the fridge for at least 2 hours, if not overnight. Leaner cuts of pork such as fillet tenderloin, or thinner cut chops and leg cuts will benefit from a marinade.
