It’s not as if I am an old man, but where has this tool been all my life?!? Yes, I am talking about the Flavor Injector.
I consider myself a manly man so it is difficult for me to admit that I discovered the Flavor Injector at the local Bed Bath and Beyond (see what happens when there is no football or baseball!). But in the end thank god for my wife dragging me out of the house. Since discovering the tool a few weeks back I have become a regular old A-Rod… addicted to the juice! An added bonus is that the injector is less than $15!
Like most of you I hate dry and over cooked meats, but love a good sauce that adds flavor and moistens the meat. With the Flavor Injector you can inject the flavors of spices and sauces directly into the center of the meats. This method captures the full flavor of the marinade and keeps the food moist for tender cooking. You no longer have to worry about losing all the juices as they drip over the coals.
And the best part of the tool is that it’s easy to use and adds no additional time to your preparation. Four easy steps:
- Pour your marinade into the injector chamber.
- Oil the needle.
- Stick the needle into the meet.
- Push the plunger to release the marinade into different spots of the meat.
Then just grill as you normally would. So simple, yet so damn tasty!
Below is a simple steak marinade that I have been trying at home and will be using on opening day:
- 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
- Pinch of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
- 2 garlic cloves crushed
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
