Easy Teryaki Marinade

A few years ago I tripped over this recipe, and with the amount of steak tips we eat in the summer this is good to have on hand. Well, the amount of grilling we do in the summer, no matter what meat you are cooking, this recipe is good to have on hand. The cost of "30 minute marinade" is quite pricey when you think about it if you like meat marinaded and you marinade a few times a week. Keep in mind that after the meat has been marinated all the marinade must be tossed (since it is now contaminated). What a waste ... but when you make it at home it is so much cheaper which means less money down the drain.

Super Simple Teryaki Marinade

8 oz. can of crushed pineapple
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce

Whisk all the ingredients together.

When marinating it is best to pour it into a zip-lock bag and marinate meat in bag. Refrigerate for 1 hour-24 hours.

As you can see we made chicken on skewers and they were fantastic. Like I said, steak tips, chicken thighs, chicken wings, chicken or beef on skewers, etc. the sky is the limit.
