What You'll Need

  • 1 cup/240 mL balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL water
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL paprika
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL salt (kosher)
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) marjoram (dried)
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) mustard (seed)

How to Make It

1. Combine all ingredients.

2. Use immediately or store in an airtight glass or plastic container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days after preparation. Beef and lamb can marinate for 4 to 24 hours in mixture. For pork and poultry, 4 to 6 hours.
