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 that days 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 onion, so I used green onion instead.
Always marinade your protein in the refrigerator, not on the counter. Turn the bag over a few times to make sure that the marinade is getting to all of the protein! Also, if your protein is too big for a zip loc bag, use a bowl.
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
1/4 tsp ginger, minced
- Mix all of the ingredients together
- Put the marinade into a zip loc bag
- Add whatever protein you are using. Seal the bag… put it in the refrigerator & marinade until ready to cook!
