I have a wonderful recipe book. It's hand-written by my mom, who gave it to me when I got married. It contains dozens of the recipes I grew up with. In this new series, I'll share some of those recipes with you. My mom's a great cook, so when you occasionally see "Mom's Recipe Book" posts, be sure to check them out! (Mom collects recipes from a lot of places. I don't know the original sources for most of these recipes.)
The first section in the book is "Beef and Pork," and it includes a recipe for teriyaki marinade. It's an easy, tasty alternative to the bottled stuff.
Teriyaki Marinade for Meat
2/3 c soy sauce
1/4 c wine vinegar
2 T sugar
1 t ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
Combine. Marinate meat minimum 30 minutes, up to overnight. Broil or grill
Store extra marinade in a bottle in the refrigerator.
