The Ultimate Marinade.

This marinade is incredible – as well as extremely versatile. It is super simple to throw together, and chances are you have most of the ingredients already.

     

It takes less than 5 minutes.

 

 

 

We have been using this in my family for years. The base is some simple soy sauce.

I prefer the reduced-sodium version. I’d rather get my sodium load in other blood pressure raising meals.

 

 

 

 Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl or baking dish.

The most common foods we marinate in my house are chicken and steak. The marinade is also INCREDIBLE on shrimp before it is grilled, or on veggies (not that I would know). I can imagine it may also be good with tofu.

Hmmm..didn’t I just post about a possible vegetarian switch? By the way, thank you all so, so much for your suggestions! I am going to attempt a few of them this weekend.
