I can remember very little definite coming up when this question came  
up here previously. Generally, we wandered off on some other tangent  
or more modern marinades were discussed.

However, you might want to take a look at this *very* short file in  
the FOOD-MEATS section of the Florilegium.

p-marinating-msg   (4K) 10/31/01    Period marinating of meats.

We can document oil and vinegar as salad dressing, though. :-)

Also, along the lines of tenderizing meat, but using different  
methods, see this file, also in this same section:

meat-aging-msg    (20K)  1/10/08    The aging of meat to tenderize it  
in period
                                        and today.
