This was used on a 7 bone chuck roast. I'm not sure how well this translates into Oz, so please google. Mom would marinade these for a few days in the refer, constantly turning and piercing with a fork. I like to let it marinade for a good 48 hours. To me this must be done on charcoal brquettes. I can't imagine using gas or the oven. Happy grilling.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup olive oil

  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 Tbsp A-1 sauce (steak sauce)

  • 1 heavy pinch thyme

  • 3 heavy pinches oregano

  • 1 heavy pinch garlic

  • juice of one lemon. then slice (see note)

Method

  • 1.

    Wisk all ingredients together.

  • 2.

    Place chuck in glass dish and cover with marinade and sliced lemon. Refrigerate 24 to 48 hours. The longer the better,as it chemically cooks. Pierce with fork frequently and turn over, replace lemon slices.

  • 3.

    As lemons change during the season, their moisture changes, you may want to use a few.

  • 4.

    Allow this to return to room temp before grilling. Medium charcoal is best, don't want to cook this too fast.

Notes

As with any recipe, try this as written, then adjust to your taste.

Metal pan would change the taste, be sure to use glass or ceramic.

I have no idea if A-! is available in Oz. Made by Kraft, maybe it's left over Vegamite. :-)

LOL Marti - seriously doubt whether A1 is vegemite based!! Lovely marinade recipe, thanks for sharing!
For those of us in Oz the ingredient list for A1 is as follows (as stated on A1 official website) TOMATO PUREE (WATER, TOMATO PASTE), DISTILLED VINEGAR, CORN SYRUP, SALT, RAISIN PASTE, CRUSHED ORANGE PUREE, SPICES AND HERBS, DRIED GARLIC AND ONION, CARAMEL COLOR, POTASSIUM SORBATE (TO PRESERVE FRESHNESS), XANTHAN GUM.
Am thinking perhaps HP sauce would probably do the trick. A1 is available in Australia through internet shopping - just Google A1 in Aust for site info if you want to be authentic to this recipe.
