This marinade is good for 2lbs of meat. You can use any type of steak or, of course pork. I use pork tenderloin.
¼ cup Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Fresh Ginger, peeled and grated
2 Garlic Cloves – crushed
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
2 tbsp Sesame Oil
Lots of freshly ground Pepper
- Combine all ingredients and marinade overnight in fridge. I usually put the meat and the marinade in a ziplock bag and turn it a few times to make sure that the meat is covered with the marinade. I often only marinade it for a few hours, which is plenty of time.
- Before marinading pork tenderloin, take the thin membrane off. You do this just by pulling it off. For best results also remove the tough tendons. They are the white ‘stuff’ on the meat which can not be pulled off but has to be cut off.
- Cut the meat through the middle, but not all the way through, so that when it opens up, it looks like a book i.e. attached in the centre. By doing this you get more flavour as the meat has more surface to marinate in.
- Cook on the BBQ over medium low heat for approximately ten minutes. Since I don’t have a BBQ, I use the George Forman Grill, which takes a bit longer.
- I usually serve this with boiled carrots, asparagus, and some roasted potatoes.
