Premade Marinades Make Sense

No matter if you’re working in your local area’s favorite chain restaurant, creating unforgettable dining experiences with your catering company, or concocting meals for consumers to order, there is an endless list of tasks to tend to. Take the hassle of preparing and perfecting marinades off your plate—there are many benefits to using premade marinades in a busy commercial kitchen.

Reduce Prep Time

Every commercial kitchen has a seemingly never-ending list of tedious tasks that take tons of time. In creating your own marinade, you’d need to gather the ingredients, chop, measure, mix, taste, and alter accordingly—who has time for that when there are so many more important tasks to be completed? Utilizing a premade marinade from Butterball reduces preparation time, keeping everyone in your kitchen calmer and more focused on tasks that truly help you deliver an exceptional dining experience. 

Ensure Flavor Consistency

When you attempt to create the same marinade for each dinner service, you run the risk of altering the flavor profile or the fine balance of acid. In a marinade, this can directly affect the final taste of your protein as well as how tender it is. Established guests will undoubtedly taste the difference. Premade marinades ensure dishes taste the same with every preparation, helping you maintain the highest level of quality and customer service that your guests expect.

Create Custom Marinades with Butterball

Butterball is the top supplier of custom marinades—whatever you’re cooking, we’ve got you covered. 

Ready-Made Chicken Marinade

The key to a phenomenal chicken dish is moisture. An acidic marinade allows flavors like balsamic, soy, or ginger to soak into the meat, leaving you with an unbelievably juicy bite that customers will be raving about. With Butterball’s custom marinades, there will be no dull, dry chicken dishes coming out of your kitchen.

Ready-Made Steak Marinade

Depending on the cut, steak can be quite tough and require a few hours of marinating for the fibers to break down and become tender. A lemon and garlic marinade is a classic combination that can be made more complex with a bit of honey or a sprinkle of fresh herbs, like rosemary.

Ready-Made Marinade for Grilled Vegetables

Before throwing them on the grill, impart incredible flavor into vegetable skewers or cauliflower steaks with a marinade made with notes of citrus and spice.
