Teriyaki Marinade III

Recipe by  

"Easy and wonderful teriyaki marinade for barbeque or roasting. For a zestier marinade, use lime or lemon juice; for a milder version, use water. If you would like to use the marinade as a sauce, you can boil it after removing the meat and add a little slurry of cornstarch and warm water to thicken it. When I make the sauce, I usually add some sesame seeds for looks. You can add fresh or ground ginger if you like, too."

  1. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, orange juice, garlic, and pepper. Pour over beef, pork, or chicken. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours, or overnight. The longer the meat is marinated, the stronger the flavor will be.

I didn't have orange juice, so I added some honey instead. Turned out perfect! You can adjust this marinade any way you want and it will likely turn out great.

Didn't have much flavor, marinated for 4 hours. Used flank steak. If I use this again, because it's easy, I will try to marinate overnight to see if the flavor is maximized. I did, however, boil the marinade and poured some over each serving, which helped to give some flavor. Otherwise, the meat alone was flavorless.

Excellent sauce! I stumbled across this recipe when I was looking for a recipe to dress up store bought teriyaki sauce. After reading the reviews, I tossed the store bought marinade in the trash. I changed the recipe slightly by adding 2 more cloves of garlic, 2 tsp of minced candied ginger, and 1 tbl of cornstarch. I microwaved it on high for 3 minutes and then poured it over skinless, boneless, chicken breasts that I had pounded flat. I baked it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The sauce thickened nicely, and I had plenty to put on top of the chicken. I served it all over steamed jasmine rice, and topped it with fresh cilantro and sliced green onions. It had a wonderful flavor and so much better than any other teriyaki that I have had.

This recipe is GREAT on steak for me it lost a little bit on chicken. I did add ginger and extra garlic.

I added some chopped green onion. I let my meat (beef) marinade for almost 24 hours before cooking it. This was good but I think it's missing something. Maybe rice vinegar? I'm not sure.

this is a great sauce! I use it every time I make stir fry and my husband LOVES it! I put a pinch of crushed red pepper in it to give it a good punch. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!!

I used this with chicken breasts I put on to marinde at lunch time. They were perfect. I used the orange juice as called for and found just a hint of the fruit taste in my meat, they were not too salty and came out perfect. I served with potatoes and grilled veggies. Given the ease of this marinade I am sure I will be making it again.
