Marinade With Soya Sauce & Honey

This delicious marinade is from my friend Rhonda. She uses it on her flank steak, but it is good on anything. I am using it on a mock tenderloin that I am going to BBQ. 

I am sure that this marinade would be good on chicken as well. There is vinegar in it so I think that it might not be good for a soft protein like fish, if you do want to use it on some salmon, I would not marinade it for long…but I bet it would be good on tofu!!! Then you can grill the pieces of tofu or roast the tofu in the oven! Here is a link to the beef I made with this marinade Beef on the BBQ

Just mix up all of the ingredients & marinade the meat for 1 hour or more. I usually do it overnight, but if you don’t have time, put this together in the morning for supper! The longer you marinade your meat., the more flavour it will have & the more tender it will be.

The nice thing about this marinade, beside the great taste, is that it uses common ingredients. I had everything needed for it except the regular onion, so I used green onion instead.

Always marinade your protein in the refrigerator, not on the counter. I usually marinade food in a zip loc bag, but use whatever you want!  I you are using a zip loc bag, turn the bag over occasionally  to make sure that the marinade is getting to all of the protein! Here is the recipe


3/4 cup oil

1/4 cup soya sauce

1/4 cup honey

2 tbsp vinegar

2 tbsp chopped onion or 2 green onions

1 clove garlic, minced *** I used 1 tsp minced garlic from a jar

1/4 tsp ginger, minced


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together
  2. Put the marinade into a zip loc bag
  3. Add whatever protein you are using. Seal the bag…
  4. Get all of the food covered in the marinade
  5. Put this into the refrigerator & marinade until ready to cook!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
