Marinade the Meat for the Schwenker - German Grilling
The Schwenker, A German Tradition

The marinade should be started the day before. - The Schwenker, A German Tradition


Traditionally the meat is marinated for at least 24 hours. You can get away with marinating just a few hours, if you are pressed for time. Onions and marinade are layered with the steaks in a bowl. Turn the steaks and make sure both sides are well coated in marinade. Cover the bowl and refrigerate.
