A Very Simple Marinade Sauce

This simple marinade sauce is sweet and tangy with a touch of heat. I created it many years ago, when I was out of store bought marinade. You can use this marinade on Beef, such as London Broil, chuck steak, chuck roast, chicken and pork. It takes no time at all to whip up this great marinade. It is best to marinate the meat overnight for the most flavor, and poke holes in the meat so that the marinade can soak into the meat, and make it more flavorful. This is a wonderful marinade for a BBQ, it will really bring out the flavor of the meat!


1 cup of finely chopped onion

1 cup of ketchup

2/3 cup of packed brown sugar

3 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce

2/3 cup of Red wine vinegar

Red Pepper flakes, to taste

You will need to double the recipe, so that you have extra to marinate the meat when you cook it.

Meat-- London Broil


You will combine all the ingredients and whisk them well. Place your meat of choice in a zipper lock bag, or you can use a bowl if you want to. Add half of the marinade and make sure the meat is coated well. Refrigerate 6 hrs to overnight, turning occasionally. I like to marinate it overnight, to get the most flavor possible. Be sure to cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade. When you are ready to cook the meat, remove it from the marinade and discard it. ( you never use the marinade that the meat sat in). Place the meat in a roasting pan, ( or a prepared BBQ grill), and use some of the leftover marinade to coat the meat, cook for a bit and add the rest of the marinade, continue cooking until the meat is the desired doneness. You should keep an eye on it, so it does not overcook, and become tough.

Today I have made a triple batch of the marinade, as I will be cooking 2 London broils for a crowd. And I will be wrapping my meat in tin foil to keep all those wonderful juices in the meat. I will be placing my roasting pan in a 325 degree oven, and cooking my meat nice and slow, so that it comes out so tender. I want my meat to be just a bit pink inside, so I will watch it carefully.

You could even use this marinade for pulled pork meat, if you wanted to. If so, I would only add like a tablespoon of BBQ sauce if you want (maybe Hickory flavor). And don't forget this marinade is crockpot friendly as well. Just pop the meat in, turn the cockpot on low, and just let it simmer away. Just so yummy and mouth watering. And it's ready when you are, just so easy and simple.

Well that's it, nice and simple, satisfying, and oh so very good! I hope you try my marinade! Thanks for reading, and have a great day. Oh and don't forget to cook your family something special from the heart!
