The truth about marinades: Most are a waste of your time

Marinating meats for the grill seems to bring out the inner herbalist in even the most hard-boiled of home cooks. A little olive oil, some lemon juice, a handful of herbs, some exotic spices — whatever smells right. It’s almost like we’re designing a scented bath oil rather than a seasoning for meat.

Herbs maximize flavor

Herbs are culinary workhorses of the kitchen. But not all work together well because some have stronger, more assertive flavors than others. And you don’t want to mix too many herbs (fresh or dried) because they can get lost in a dish and end up being a complete waste of ingredients. Herbs are meant to enhance and add flavor and dimension to a dish, not overpower it or be too subtle.
