When The Mustard Farts, Make A Marinade

Mustard is one of those items we tend to have in our refrigerators that is bursting with flavor and goes well with just about any kind of meat you might be cooking. Being one who likes to save every single penny I can, I cannot just simply take my farting mustard container and throw it into the garbage and call it done. Instead, when the mustard farts, I make a marinade.

Do you know that on average an "empty" mustard container contains about 2-3 teaspoons of mustard in it still? Imagine in a lifetime how much mustard you might be throwing away? And while you may not miss the pennies in the short term, over a lifetime you're basically tossing money right into the garbage bin.

Instead of tossing your empty mustard containers, why not rinse them into a marinade?

First, measure up a 1/2 cup of wine of choice. Bring out your "empty" mustard container and pour in a little bit of the wine. Close her up and shake. You'll bring out all of the residual mustard left in the container. Pour it into your mix. Voila! You've saved a few pennies rinsing your mustard out and you'll have a fantastic marinade to boot.

What you will need:

  • An "empty" mustard container
  • 1/2 cup wine
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 ounce apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ounce soy sauce
As I said, shake out the excess mustard and dump it into the mix. Add the other ingredients and whisk it all together. Add your meat and marinade. Trust me, you will save money and have a fantastic meal to boot.
