This marinade is delicious and I used it with a nice pork chop. I didn't have long to marinate this so I just baked it in the oven and let the sauce reduce and thicken. I substituted real ginger for the powder and honey for the molasses. I added some red pepper flakes for some heat. YUMMM!!! and quick and easy.
I used this on pork chops and neither the husband nor I liked it at all. Maybe it was my wine choice--I used red cooking wine as I didn't have any regular red wine. ??
We used this marinade on a pork tenderloin this evening and we just loved it! I usually don't care for marinades that are heavy on the soy sauce, but I was impressed how well it turned out. We used low sodium soy sauce and a lighter shiraz, which helped and the molasses flavor is subtle and really, really good. Brown sugar would have been great here too. Just that little bit of sweetness from the molasses added a nice crust from the grill on the outside of the meat and it was tender and perfect on the inside. We also did another tenderloin with straight bbq sauce just in case we didn't like this marinade, and there was a ton of the bbq tenderloin left over and none of this one!!! A sign of a great recipe!
I doubled the amount of red wine and added less soy and half the sugar and they are awesome!
I changed the recipe a little bit based on what I had in the house. I only had a soy sauce marinade, which is really just soy sauce and sugar. So I used 3/4 cups of the marinade instead of 1/2 cup and I used 1 1/2 tbsp of sugar instead of 3 tbsp. I also used brown sugar instead of molasses. The wine I used was a shiraz. The marinade was delicious, and I'm sure it would be even better if I followed the ingredients more precisely!
I used this on chicken kabobs which I marinated for about 4 hours before grilling. The resulting chicken was tender and moist with a mildly sweet flavor. Very tasty!
This was great! I marinated fresh pork in this overnight, and it was delicious! I added extra garlic (probably double), and a bit extra ginger to give it a little more kick. I will definitely use this again. :)
I really liked this marinade. It gave my pork chops LOTS of flavor. I used splenda instead of real sugar and I used Merlot for the wine. I put slightly less molasses because it's so strong. Very good recipe and I would think it would be safe for children because the alcohol cooks out of it but still adds some flavor. :-)
