Ready, Set, Marinate: Marinating Meat & Vegetables Workshop
July 2, 2016
Love grilling food, but tired of using a store bought marinade? Join University of Illinois Extension for an afternoon of learning about making marinades for meat and vegetables, food safety tips, marinating techniques, receive recipes, and do a quick taste testing. Take advantage of the summer weather and grill healthy with lean cuts of meat. When grocery shopping, choose “select” and “choice” grades of meat over “prime” as they typically have less fat. Lean meat can sometimes be tough due to long muscle fibers and little fat, but that is where marinades can help tenderize and add extra flavor.
The class will be at no cost from 1:30 to 2:30pm on Friday July 22nd at University of Illinois Extension Office in Taylorville.
Pre-registration is required by July 21st through http://web.extension.illinois.edu/cjmm/ Once on the site, go to the “Register Online” area at the right hand side and click on the event. Registration can also be done by calling the Christian County Extension office at 217-287-7246. For any questions or concerns please call the Extension office or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
