This recipe calls for buttermilk. We do not have any buttermilk. What can we do to make it?

This beautiful marinade adds an exquisite flavor to these already tender steaks. The final result will be so tender and juicy, it will melt in your mouth.

You can purchase dry buttermilk where you add water to make the amount that your recipe calls for. It is usually near the bakery items.

This is what I do ... place one tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup and add milk to make one cup. Let stand 5 minutes. Change measurements according to your recipe. Hope this helps.

Since that recipe calls for 1/4 each of milk and buttermilk and already has lemon in it, I'd measure half cup of milk and add the lemon juice called for in the recipe to that and let it sit a while.

We raised our own meat and vegetables when I was a girl. This golden chicken always reminds me of Mom and home...there's nothing quite like a crispy piece smothered in creamy gravy. -- Vera Reid, Laramie, Wyoming

1 Cup Buttermilk (1 Tbs lemon juice or vinegar + enough milk so all together = 1 cup.)
