Apple Cider Vinegar Marinades

Here are some simple marinades that use apple cider vinegar.

Simple Apple Cider Vinegar Marinade
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Sea Salt
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic, crushed or powdered
  • Favorite Herbs, dried
  • Pepper
  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Directions: This great marinade for chicken works best with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Cut your chicken breasts into fourths. Place chicken into a zipper lock plastic bag and add apple cider vinegar until the chicken is 3/4 covered. Add salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic and herbs in proportion to how much chicken you are marinating. Ratio should be roughly 1:1:3 onion:garlic:herbs. Seal the plastic bag and shake until well coated. Allow the chicken to marinate in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Steak Marinade
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp stevia
  • 1 (approximately 3/4 pound) rib-eye steak
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
Directions: Removing any excess fat from your steak. Combine the cider, soy sauce, and sugar in a large zip-lock plastic bag.  Add the steak and place in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes and up to two hours. Once you've removed your steak, you can use your remaining marinade for a light sauce by bringing it to a boil in a small pan and simmering for about 5 minutes.

Citrus and Mustard Chicken Marinade

  • 6 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
  • stevia, to taste
  • 3 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 chicken breasts

Directions: Place all of the above ingredients except the chicken in a gallon sized freezer bag or 9 x 13 baking dish. Mix together and add chicken. Seal the bag or cover the baking dish and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, all day would be best.  Turn the chicken at least once during this process.  Grill chicken and enjoy!

  • 1/4 tsp paprika
