Have you purchased a bottle of Reggae Reggae sauce with the intention of using it as a marinade? Wondering what you actually do and how much of the sauce to use. Well, here is everything you need to know.
So, how do you use Reggae Reggae sauce as a marinade? To use Reggae Reggae sauce as a marinade, first, prepare your chicken or meat. Cut some small holes, or pierce it to allow the flavor to soak further. Then, pour the sauce all over, being sure to cover the food completely. Leave in the fridge for 12-24 hours prior to cooking (baking/grilling).
That’s the gist of it.
And it’s relatively easy, at least in theory.
But there are some tricks and tips that will make the whole process, and resulting taste much more delicious.
We will get into that shortly.
Let’s delve deeper into the process so you know exactly what to do, and when.
How To Marinate With Reggae Reggae Sauce
Below you will find the process, step-by-step.
Step One: Acquire The Sauce
If you intend on marinating with Reggae Reggae sauce, be sure to purchase, or have a sufficient amount available.
1/2 bottles may be needed depending on how much food you intend on marinating.
Step Two: Prepare The Meat
Cut off any fat or undesired parts of the meat that you do not want to use.
This could be skin, for instance.
From there, use a knife to cut a few holes into the meat. This will ensure all of the sauce is fully absorbed.
Step Three: Transfer To A Container
Prior to applying the sauce, put your chicken or meat into a container that you can seal and is airtight.
This could be a glass pyrex dish, a sandwich box, a fridge storage box, or equivalent.
Step Four: Cover The Meat
Now it’s time to use the sauce.
Pour the sauce over the chicken/meat, and be sure to cover it entirely.
Turn the chicken/meat over and ensure that the sauce runs over it entirely – seeping into the holes you made earlier.
With your fingers, rub some of the sauce in.
Step Five: Transfer To the Fridge
Wash your hands and add a lid to the container. Ensure it is airtight.
Transfer to the fridge and leave for 12-24 hours. Overnight tends to work best.
Step Six: Transfer To the Fridge
When you are ready to cook, take the container out of the fridge, and carefully move the chicken/meat around in the dish to pick up any sauce for one last time.
Bake or grill your chicken/meat over medium heat and enjoy!
Be sure to discard any leftover sauce.
Reggae Reggae Sauce Marinating Tips
Below, I share with you some of my best practices when marinating with Reggae Reggae sauce.
- Purchase and use from a glass bottle of Reggae Reggae sauce, the squeezy bottle takes much longer to use and get the sauce out from.
- The longer you can leave your meat to marinate, the better. 24 hours is better than 12.
- For increased flavor, consider marinating chicken legs, thighs, wings or a combination of all three ovr breast.
- Cook on a low heat, to ensure you do not burn the chicken/meat/sauce.
- Dont be afriad to rub the sauce into the chicken/meat, ensuring it seeps into any hole you create.
- Wash your hands thoroughly throughout the process, and ensure optimal hygiene at all times.
- If you have leftover sauce in the bottle, consider brushing this over your chicken/meat prior to cooking.
- Consider taste preferences, you may need to use less sauce if less spice is required.
