Cook's Notes:

This recipe makes a lot of marinade! I split it in half after mixing and froze half in a resealable plastic bag for next time.

Letting your meat marinate overnight will tenderize it as well as give it a hearty flavor for grilling. However, if using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, don't marinate overnight as it would get too strong.

This is a great marinade it does make a lot. I made a quarter of the recipe and it was more than enough for 3 steaks. I think this would be excellent on chicken. Read More

This is THE BEST marinade I have found thus far. It tenderizes so don't leave too long -- I used it with boneless skinless chicken thighs for 4-5 hours before I grilled them and the whole house raved. Definite keeper! I didn't have sherry (didn't substitute) blackbean sauce or garlic chile paste. I'll try again with those and update this review later. Read More

We really enjoyed this marinade and is so close to the one at our speciality grocery store. From now on I will be making it instead of buying it. I used it on beef kabobs. Read More

I tried this on boneless chuck short ribs and it was very good. I didn't change a thing and I marinated overnight. I have quite a bit of the marinade left so I'll try it on chicken tomorrow. I did not discard the used marinade for the ribs and I simmered it for a few minutes on the stove until it reduced to about one half. Then I drizzled it on the meat and grilled veggies for serving.
