This is one of my basic marinades for all types of meat poulty & even fish. I also use it to make teriyaki chicken wings which are a favorite at gatherings. I bake 2-3 pounds of wings seasoning them with salt pepper & a little melted butter. Bake at 350 until done & brown. Then throw them into a crock pot on low with this marinade poured over them. Finger licking good! Read More

Good not great. I somewhat halved the recipe for four large chicken breasts bonein using these measurements: 1/2c soy 1/2c water 2T brown sugar 1/4t ginger 1/2t garlic 2T onion 2T sherry. I marinated them for a few hours then baked in the marinade (what used to be) skin side up. Covered it in foil for 45 minutes uncovered last 15. No one gave compliments but they didn't complain (as usual) either.:/:) The trick to add water is a good one. Adding water you get the flavor without the toughness it can cause. Oh after baking I thickened the strained pan drippings with 2T cornstarch. Read More

I changed the recipe to have a lot more ginger. One tablespoon of ground ginger. It smelled really strong but the ginger cooked off. Made an excellent marinade. Can't wait to try it again. -Chris Read More

Yummy! Beef turned out great marinated in the sauce. After marinating the beef in the sauce I reduced the sauce by half and then used it the next night for a stir fry! Read More

Very good marinade, good for last minute marinade if you dont have time to marinade overnight (which I prefer). I also marinaded some mushrooms for a few hours I think, but they were way too salty. A 1/2 hr probably would be better for mushrooms. Read More

I used reduced sodium soy sauce and I used sliced green onion as the onion in this recipe. I also increased the garlic to what my husband calls a "crapton". I marinated my pork in this overnight then cooked it this morning before it got hot and so I could have some before I went to work. I made Cold Sesame Noodles to go with it. It was quite good though I think it's missing something. Next time I'd increase the ginger for sure. Marinating for a length of time is really the way to go for best results. Read More

Very good teriyaki recipe! I omitted the water reduced the brown sugar to 1/4 c and added dark Karo syrup for color and a bit of glazing. Used this to marinate a steak and it was delish! Boyfriend says this is a keeper! I agree. Read More

This was pretty good. I made it with a chicken stir fry. It was delicious with the chicken but the vegetables tasted kind of odd. (It's almost as if the vegetables absorbed more of the sugar than the chicken.) I will use again probably just for chicken though! Read More
