What happens when you marinate meat in a metal pan?
By SHACKLELACK from PALMETTO, FL
I don't know, but I would think that any kind of marinade with acid in it like vinegar or lemon would react with the metal. I marinate my food in a zip lock bag, place the bag in a glass pie plate, then refrigerate.
Also, you probably know this already, but throw out the marinade after you're finished. I've read that you'll have to heat the leftover marinade and cook it. But it has the blood in it. Anyway, I always throw it out.
I've also found that when I make lasagna and cover it with aluminum foil that the tomato sauce will eat into the aluminum foil. It's the acid in the tomatoes even after they're cooked. Hope this helps. (04/20/2009)
The food can take on a metallic taste; use glass or a Ziploc. (04/21/2009)
