1 Mix all ingredients together with 4-5 tablespoons water. Use to marinate your meat. Marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
2 Heat a non-stick pan until hot and cook meat for 3-4 minutes or until evenly seared on the outside. Leave to stand before slicing.

- Works well with beef and lamb.
- This marinade also works well with large pieces of meat. Make double the quantity for parties.
- Use lean cuts of meat.
- Place marinade and meat in a non-metallic dish to marinate.
- To allow flavours to be absorbed into the food, use a sharp knife to make slits in the surface of the meat before marinating.
- Once marinated, keep meat and fish in the fridge covered until ready to cook.
- Once cooked, leave meat to stand for 5-10 minutes to allow the meat to rest so the juices re-absorb into the meat.
