Melt in Your Mouth Marinade

Melt in Your Mouth Marinade


"A wonderful marinade that makes even the toughest cuts of beef so tender you could cut them with a butter knife. Tastes great on pork chops and chicken, too. Play with the amounts of garlic and ginger to suit your taste. I tend to use more rather than less. Makes enough for four servings."

The taste was really good, but this was a little too salty. I even used low sodium soy sauce. I used the full amount of garlic and ginger called for in the recipe and marinated a couple of ten...

I made this marinade but I 'beefed' it up a bit. I followed the recipe but I substituted 2 TBSP minced garlic from a jar and 3 TBSP prepared yellow mustard. On top of the recipe I added; 1/4 Wor...

This was yummy. I marinated sirloin steaks in it. However, it was a bit salty. I'd take everyone else's advise next time and use half the soy sauce. I also added a couple cloves of fresh minced ...
