Hi,I'm an expatrioted Washingtonian living in the Sunshine State now. I had a friend who used a marinade from one of the Congressional Cookbooks.It was a steak Marinade,kept in a jar and shaken before use.I was hoping somebody might have access to this,I'd love to add it to my arsenal again!Thanks in advance!
This is the only thing I can find online that fits the "library of congress" "Congressional Cookbook" marinade requirement:
Servings: 1 Servings
1 SMALL ONION
2 SMALL CLOVES GARLIC
1 1" PIECE OF GINGER ROOT
2 teaspoon CRACKED BLACK PEPPERCORNS
1 teaspoon RED PEPPER FLAKES
1 teaspoon CORIANDER SEEDS
1 teaspoon CARDOMOM GRAINS
1 teaspoon FENUGREEK SEEDS - OPTIONAL
⅛ teaspoon CINNAMON
⅛ teaspoon GROUND CLOVES
⅛ teaspoon GROUND ALLSPICE
1 tablespoon SALT OR TO TASTE
1/3 cub PAPRIKA
½ cub OLIVE OIL
1 JUICE OF ONE LEMON
FINELY CHOP THE ONION. MINCE GARLIC AND GINGER. PLACE ONIONS, GARLIC, GINGER, PEPPERCORNS, RED PEPPER FLAKES, CORIANDER, CARDOMOM, FENUGREEK, CINNAMOM, CLOVES, ALLSPICE, SALT AND PAPRIKA IN A DRY SKILLET. COOK OVER MEDIUM HEAT FOR 3 TO 4 MINUTES, OR UNTIL SPICES ARE LIGHTLY TOASTED AND FRAGRANT. COMBINE ROASTED SPICES, OLIVE OIL AND LEMON JUICE IN BLENDER AND PUREE UNTIL SMOOTH. SPREAD PASTE ON MEAT AND MARINATE OVERNIGHT. WARNING!!
A LITTLE OF THIS SPICY MIX GOES A LONG WAY. MAKES ENOUGH MARINADE FOR ABOUT 2 LBS. OF MEAT. (PORK, SIRLOIN STEAK, TUNA). NOTE:: FENUGREEK IS A RECTANGULAR SEED FOUND IN INDIAN OR MIDDLE EASTERN GROCERY STORES.
