A Marinate for Just About Anything

Updated on April 7, 2012

A Marinate, Sauce or Salad Dressing

The recipe below is one that can be used as marinate for beef, chicken and fish. I have reduced it and used it as a sauce for the cooked meat and even for pasta and rice noodles. It has also been used as a salad dressing. The base is soy, so adding salt is not necessary.

1 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup sesame oil

1 cup dry white vermouth

Tablespoon minced garlic

Tablespoon minced ginger

½ Tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

If you like a little sweet taste to it, add tiny bits of sugar until you get what you like.

If you are using it to marinate meat, the meat can be marinated all day. Turn it over at least once.

If you are using it as a sauce, I would reduce it by about a third.

If you are using it as a salad dressing, decide for yourself if you like it better as is or reduced a bit. I reduce mine a little bit. (not as much as when using it as a sauce), then refrigerate. It seems to me that cooking it allows the flavors to blend nicely.

I hope this recipe is one you will enjoy. Bon Appetit!!

I use this recipe on London Broil often

      Yum! I don't marinate enough - and you reminded me of that - delightful and very useful. With high food prices, we must cook smarter. This is working smart. Thank you!

      I'm so used to buying ready sauces that I haven't given much thought of actually trying to make my own at home. This is appealing to me, I will give it a go over the weekend, I think that would be great for a salad too as you say :-) Thanks.

      Good thing you didn't make your marinade during Henry VIII's reign! If you had, you would have been his widow instead of Katherine Parr! Then again, you might have saved the lives of his first five wives, as he would have been too busy eating your London Broil!

      This is tailor made for me, I always like a sauce with my food and if as you say this goes with just about everything you need to bottle it and get it in the shops as soon as. Loved it, voted up. :)

      Oh my God! Now I see how Robin Hood and his gang were used to eat roasted beef beyond the Sherwood trees. I have a similar marinate, but yours is like made for Henry VIII. So juicy and tasty. I'm glad I have a mental locked on taster. Delicious!
