How does vacuum marinating work?
It works. It’s just physics. Vacuuming out air creates lower pressure inside the container. Lower pressure acts like suction, and the liquid ‘rushes’ into the meat much faster than during normal osmosis (marinating).
Can you vacuum seal meat with marinade and freeze?
Freezing meat in a marinade helps it absorb flavour. The flavour infuses the chicken while it is freezing, stops while frozen, but then continues while thawing and cooking. Put the frozen chicken parts in a FoodSaver® Liquid Block Vacuum-Seal Bag, add the marinade, vacuum seal the bag, and refreeze.
How long does it take to marinate with FoodSaver?

Can you Season meat before vacuum sealing?
Season meat before vacuum sealing it This can be as simple as adding a little salt, or you can add other spices, herbs from an herb garden, or garlic if desired.
