Time saving tip: Anytime you’re marinating meat, reserve a single or double portion (with enough marinade to coat it) in a resealable plastic bag and freeze it.
This is extremely helpful for those of us who live alone or with only one other person. It’s a way to pre-portion your dinner and to save yourself the hassle of marinating meat ahead of time.
As a general rule, anytime you can double the recipe you’re making, go ahead and do it. You can freeze half and then enjoy the same delicious meal another time without the fuss of cooking.
The morning before you plan to cook it, simply thaw the bag of marinated meat on your countertop, or thaw it in the fridge overnight.
