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.


















Give it a good whisk! IMG_1225 










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.
