Homer's Best Marinade

After several taste tests, cooking experiments and lots of eating, we found this to be the best marinade for beef brisket. The wine will tenderize the meat so it will melt in your mouth. You can also use this marinade for any beef you plan to grill or smoke. This recipe will make enough for 3-4 pounds of beef.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes

1 cup red wine
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup oil
4 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon rosemary
½ teaspoon pepper

Mix all ingredients for marinade and stir well. Marinate beef at least 4 hours up to 12 hours.

• Use this marinade on any beef you plan to grill or smoke for great results
• The wine in the marinade will tenderize the beef; use a light wine like a Burgundy or young Pinot Noir.
