This marinade is sweet, tangy, and absolutely delicious! If you like balsamic vinegar you'll love this one. I did this on 4 boneless chicken breasts pounded thin. I added 1 Tbsp. of jarred minced garlic, 2 Tbsp. of honey, 1 Tbsp. of dijon mustard, and a little chopped fresh parsley. I let it marinate all day and these were so tender you could cut them with a fork!

I liked the sweetness but I think the balsamic was very overpowering. Next time I might cut back on the vinegar.

I used this marinade for portabello caps and it was delicious! In addition, I used just a pinch each of dried basil, rosemary and cilantro and TONS of fresh garlic. I marinated for about three hours and then covered with foil and broiled for about half an hour. Next time I will marinade for less time (they were a bit too strong). This was the vegetarian/vegan alternative to burgers and was a huge hit. Served with roasted red peppers, pepper jack cheese, sprouts, avacado and the "typical" burger garnishes.

One word: SCRUMPTIOUS! Can I just say that I will never use another marinade as long as I live?! If you love balsamic vinegar, as I do, then you MUST try this marinade. It makes your meat burst with the flavor but without the acidic burn. I marinated my top sirloin chunks for 24 hours and OMG they were to die for! When you try this, make sure all parts of your meat have a chance to soak in the vinegar and don't be alarmed when it turns almost black. I can't say enough good things about this marinade...it is the BOMB!

Wonderful marinade. My husband remarked about how much he liked this and really wants me to make it again. i used with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. The meat marinaded about 4 hours and came out tender, juicy and with lots of flavor. I froze the remaining marinade with more chicken breasts for future use.

Excellent. Great recipe to use for my husband to eat chicken.

This was really good and easy! I would say that if you don't like the flavor of sauerbraten, you probably won't like this, but my husband and I loved it.

I've only tried this on pork thus far, but I love it.
