I've used this with both chicken breasts (makes enough for 8 boneless breasts) or pork tenderloins. It makes the meat so tender and juicy! Perfect for grilling, or you can also use it in the oven. Great in a slow cooker if you prefer, for an easy dinner without the grill. Be SURE to wear gloves when handling the hot peppers.
- 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
- 3 medium scallions, coarsely chopped
- 2 habanero peppers (substitute with 3 jalapenos if desired) or 2 scotch bonnet peppers, split opened and seeded, coarsely chopped (substitute with 3 jalapenos if desired)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon Chinese five spice powder
- 1 tablespoon ground allspice
- 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon crumbled thyme
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- In a food processor combine all of the ingredients except for the soy sauce and vegetable oil, and process to a coarse paste.
- With the machine on, add the soy sauce and oil in a steady stream until combined.
- Pour marinade into a large ziplock bag and add your meat.
- Marinate overnight and let your meat come to room temperature before grilling.
- If using the crock pot option, add sauce to meat when you place it in the cooker and cook on low heat setting.
