Marinated Beef with Avocados is a terrific dish for any party, tailgate or picnic. Such an elegant meal for that romantic lunch!
Oh my goodness. It’s SO good. Add a glass of wine, a couple of pieces of French Bread, and a wonderful dessert, such as My Best Carrot Cake (Gluten Free!), and you have one fabulous meal. Get some sliced roast beef, add the easy marinade, sliced avocados and thin-sliced onions and then wait for the goodness to intervene.
The bad part is the waiting—you have to marinate it for several hours or overnight. So start the day before you want to eat it! The recipe comes from a 1970’s cookbook produced by the Junior League of Chicago. Don used to often make this and take it to picnics in Ravinia Park in Chicago. He calls it “Ravinia Marinated Beef.”
What You Need
Only a few tools are needed for this recipe: a knife, cutting board, measuring cups and spoons, and a covered dish to use for marinating it. But if you are going hiking and want to take this lovely meal along to impress your sweetie, make sure you have a terrific picnic bag.
