Big Daddy's Marinade is one of the newest arrivals at the Carolina Sauce Company. A North Carolina original developed from an old family recipe, Big Daddy's Marinade adds wonderful flavor to meat, game, pork and poultry because it actually penetrates the food, instead of simply coating the outside. The result is juicy, tender meat that's full of rich flavor. Most people use Big Daddy's Marinade for meat or poultry that they plan on grilling, but this tangy and peppery marinade is actually quite versatile. Here are some easy ideas for the kitchen, from the good folks who make Big Daddy's Marinade:
1. Fried Chicken or Pork: Cut the meat into strips or pieces, place in a resealable plastic bag, and pour enough Big Daddy's Marinade to coat. Marinade in the refrigerator for 30 to 45 minutes. Heat oil in a frying pan, remove meat from bag and dredge in flour or dry breading. Fry breaded meat until done.
2. Fried Fish: Rinse and pat dry fillets of catfish or other mild white fish. Place fillets in a resealable plastic bag and pour enough Big Daddy's Marinade to coat. Marinade in refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes. Heat oil in a frying pan, remove fish from bag and dredge in flour or dry seafood breading. Fry breaded fillets until done (fish is golden brown and flakes easily with fork)
3. Collards and other greens: Wash and trim greens, place in a large pot, cover with water - don't add salt or pepper, but feel free to add fatback or ham hocks if you normally add them. Simmer the greens on the stove until the greens are tender (this can take a while). Remove from heat, drain the greens, and season to taste with Big Daddy's Marinade before serving.
4. Pork Roast: Place roast in a large resealable plastic bag or container with lid, pour Big Daddy's Marinade over meat to coat and marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours to overnight. Preheat oven to 325 degrees, place roast in a roasting pan and cook uncovered until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. Remove from oven, allow meat to rest for a couple of minutes, then slice and serve.
