Mom's Recipe Book: Teriyaki Marinade

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.

Thanks! My new thing is trying to make most all of the dressings, sauces, etc. I use from scratch on a regular basis - not just for special occasions. I'll definitely try this out and look forward to seeing more recipes. Any idea how long the marinade will last in the fridge?

Becky said...

Yum! Looking forward to more recipes!

Sandra said...

I'm going to try it! I'll be watching for more of your mom's recipes!

Dina, the marinade lasts about forever! I've never had it go bad, but I've probably never had it in there more than a month before using it. -Cathy (Beth's mom)

Dina--I was hoping my mom would answer you--and she did! See the comment from Cathy, below.

Becky--There will be another one tomorrow, and frequently thereafter...when I have writer's block especially! :)

Sandra--Let me know what you think!

C. Beth said...

Dina--Oops, I said Cathy, below, but her comment is of course above mine.

Thanks for sharing, I will definitely be trying that. Keep those Mom recipes coming!!!! Please.

Wow- this is so easy compared to buying the expensive stuff. Thanks for the tip!
