Quick Answers

 

 

How do I safely marinate meats?


Always marinate meats in the refrigerator. If left at room temperature, bacteria will grow more rapidly. The marinade does not kill the bacteria and is not as effective as refrigeration in slowing bacteria growth. Remember to discard the marinade after use. It contains raw juices from the meat that contain harmful bacteria.
