Giveaway cooking wines

Holland House Cooking Wines can be used to make delicious marinades.  They come in a variety of flavors such as white, white with lemon, sherry, red, and Marsala.   Each cooking wine is just that, made for cooking and grilling.  Marinating is a great way to add flavor and tenderizing to meats.  Larger or tougher cuts such as leg, rump, or shoulder will need longer marinating times (4-6 hours) while smaller or more tender cuts of lamb, beef filets, chicken breasts, or seafood require shorter marinating times (2-4 hours).  Remember never to marinate in aluminum, cast iron, or copper, as these metals will react with the acids and salts and cause an off flavor.  When grilling,  always use the tongs instead of a fork for turning the meats.  A fork will punch holes in the meat and allow the natural juices to escape.

 You can win this great prize package (Continental USA only) by leaving a comment here on the blog about what you like to grill.  Is it meat, seafood, vegetables, or something completely different that you have invented yourself?  Tell us about it!  You can enter starting right now.  The entry period will end this Saturday, October 11, 2014 at 11:59 pm CST.  I will notify the winner before next week’s giveaway.  Good luck!  I know you will love these items and wonderful cooking wines to experiment with for your next grilling day.

Here is a great recipe to start experimenting with the cooking wines.  These tri-tips use the Marsala flavor to make delicious kabobs for your next game day meal or tail-gating party.  They are full of flavor and easy to make.

HH Marsala Peppercorn Tri Trip Kabobs

4.8 from 4 reviews
Marsala Peppercorn Tri-Tip Kabobs
  • 1 cup Holland House Marsala Cooking Wine
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ Tablespoon rosemary
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons freshly crushed peppercorns
  • 1-1/2 pounds tri-tip steak, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • Fresh vegetables (onion, zucchini, mushrooms, peppers) cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Kabob skewers, bamboo or metal (if using bamboo, soak in water for 20-30 minutes before using)
  1. Combine cooking wine, brown sugar, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and peppercorns in a large bowl and mix until well blended. Taking care not to poke yourself, carefully thread the meat and vegetables onto the skewers. Lay the finished kabobs on a large tray and pour the marinade over the top, coating all the pieces well. Marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours, turning the kabobs occasionally to the coat the pieces with the sauce.
  2. Lay kabobs on a heated grill and brush with leftover marinade. Turn every 4-5 minutes until the meat is cooked.

    I love this recipe! When I make kabobs I use Button Mushrooms,Cherry Tomatoes,Bell Peppers,Onions and Sliced Andouille Sausage! I also like to grill ribs,chicken,hamburgers and marinated pork chops. I even did Buttered Garlic Bread in Foil on the grill this past Labor Day. I simply loved to grill! 😉

    Living in Florida, we grill 4-5 times per week – everything from meat, fish, vegetables and even pizza! Dough on an outdoor grill is fabulous. I remember first seeing my Mom use the Holland House products and continue to use them currently. There are some things that just taste best on the grill!

    Almost everything is better grilled! I love grilled eggplant and summer squash.

    We will be grilling in 2 weeks! We haven’t grilled in over a year. This wonderful grill package would be awesome!

    Everything is better grilled and we are charcoal only! Marinated veggies, corn on the cob, and anything that you can imagine on a skewer. The real star of the grill for us is turkey! Sometimes brined,sometimes with fresh sage, rosemary sprigs and seasonings tucked under the skin. Juicy and delicious with the pink smoke ring as it is sliced….Mmmmm!
