Kiwifruit Marinade


Summer is on it's way (for us Southern Hemisphere folks that is), and the memories of summer time barbecues are already getting me really excited!

One of my favourite meat marinades is the Edmond's Cookery Book 'Kiwifruit Marinade'. The kiwifruit in this marinade makes it very 'Kiwi' for a New Zealand summer barbecue!

Kiwifruit Marinade

2 kiwifruit, finely chopped
2 teaspoons grated root ginger
1 tablespoon honey
coarsely crushed peppercorns

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Mix well.  





Place meat in mixture, stirring to coat.  Cover and leave to marinate for at least 15 minutes, turning occasionally.  


Suitable for steaks and lamb chops. 

Barbecue your meat, and serve with something delicious (like a noodle salad) and enjoy!

    Yummy. Love the look of your noddle salad. Do you use a recipe or simply add whatever you have in the fridge?

  5. What do you do with the marinade? Do you bin it or cook it up and serve it with the meat? Curious. Sounds yum :)

  6. there's something in the acid of the kiwifruit that tenderises the meat apparently ay?
    in Korea they'd add garlic, soy sauce and some sherry to the marinade as well :)

    YUM!!!

  7. Anonymous - I just add whatever I have handy. Tonight it was tomatoes, cucumber, grated carrot, yellow pepper, olives and a dash of oil and seasoning. Really yum!

    Ana - Usually I discard the excess, but you could try cooking it up!

    Dee - mmmmmmmmm. Sounds delish! Sometimes I do a garlic, soy sauce and chilli sauce marinade!

  19. My sister gave me the tip that when using kiwifruit in baking (I've never used it in cooking! Must try this summer!) it's much easier to slice in half and spoon out, much the way we do to eat it! Makes life easier!
