light soy sauce
minced fresh ginger root
Chinese five-spice powder
Delectable! Light, flavorful, we loved it. Seemed like more marinade was needed - I had to keep stirring the carrots around while they were marinating because they weren't "submersed" enough. Next time I will double the amount of marinade.
It was a bit too salty for my taste, next time I'll try to reduce the soy sauce and add a bit of sugar...
These were really tasty. I didn't have a grill to finish these in so I stir fried them in the marinade on the stove top. Delicious.
I was a little worried about this one as other reviewers suggested the sour flavor was unpleasant, but we just loved the kick it gave this, and the flavor was amazing. I should note that I left out the five spice powder (not a fan of it). I chose not to grill, as I just couldn't see that working. I followed the recipe up to that point, keeping the carrots in the saucepan and letting them marinate, then turned them to low heat and simmered for about 20 minutes.
I changed absolutely nothing, except I cooked them on my indoor electric grill. A lot of people reviewed that these are salty... be sure to use low-sodium soy sauce. The rice vinegar gave them a nice zip that could easily be mistaken for saltiness too. Really good!
There wasn't enough of the marinade, and it was a tad salty to me. I did eat it, but I don't know if I will make it again.
Too sour as written. We did eat it though.
This was a nice way to have Asian flared veggies to go with 'Asian Lettuce Wraps' and 'Fried Rice w/Ginger, Hoisin, and Sesame' both AR recipes. I cooked the carrots on the stovetop rather than the grill as it was snowing out when I made them. Stovetop method worked great.
