Delicious! I used this on chicken, but can't wait to try it on beef. I used olive oil instead of veg. oil and low sodium soy sauce. I also opted for minced garlic from the jar vs. garlic powder. I pounded the chicken down to tenderize and to thin them out a bit before marinating them all day. They soaked up most of the marinade. I think using honey actually made the green onions stick better and I had no trouble with anything burning on the grill. If you like this marinade, you'll love Unbelievable Chicken from this site. UPDATE: I marinated sirloin steak with this marinade for 6 hours with the same modifications and it came out great. This does work on beef or chicken!
Wow....this is some fantastic stuff!!! MY hubby, the "cook," was ready to call people and brag on me for creating this wonderful chicken. I used about 8 tenders, and I had to adjust the recipe slightly. I used cider vinegar instead of white, 1 1/2 tbs. of minced onion instead of green onion, 3 tbs. of brown sugar instead of the honey, and I didn't use the ginger. Also, I only marinated for about 2 hrs. Let me tell you....this was sooooo yummy! I broiled in the oven and flipped them every few minutes at first, and then as they started to really caramelize I flipped every 1 1/2 minutes....about 9 minutes total. Moist and flavorful!!! Not at all salty...but, I suspect if you marinated for a long time...maybe that's when the soy would become overpowering. We can't say enough about this marinade....next is chicken legs!
Very good. I used this on boneless skinless chicken breasts, which I halved. I grilled them on foil for a few minutes to allow the chicken to cook without burning the outside (other reviewers mentioned the marinade burned easily). Then I put them directly on the grill until they were done. They turned out perfectly.
