This recipe was alright, but not what I expected; however, it was easy to make. I might make this again, but I might add some hoisen sauce or some garlic. Thanks for sharing! Made for Tag it Red, February 2009
This marinade was quick and easy and hubby liked it. I used low sodium soy sauce but still found it too salty/not sweet enough for me. I only marinated an hour, next time I would do longer. Thanks! I served with wild rice blend and veggies.
I've been using this recipe for years. It's very simple and tastes great.
