This is a wonderful marinade. I loved it. This is good for up to 1 or 2 lbs of meat but I always make more. I like to have extra just incase.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 13 cup rum
  • 14 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (, the kind in the jar is fine)
  • 14 teaspoon ground red pepper


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Pour over meat and marinade in the refrigerator for 4 to 8 hours.
  3. Note* I pour all of the contents into a large ziplock bag and then add the meat.
  4. I find this alot easier and it seems to marinade alot better this way.

I tried this marinade on chicken breasts. For some reason, the chicken had a very odd texture after grilling. Don't know if the rum disintigrated the chicken or I left it to marinade too long (6 hours). I may try it again on beef, but never again on chicken.

I used this to marinate shrimp and chicken before grilling. I got rave reviews from my dinner guests as well as requests for the recipe. I used coconut rum and made grilled pineapple to serve on the side. I will make this one again.

I found this recipe in an old Better Homes and Gardens Grilling cookbook. When ever I have a fresh pineapple, I put all the "its and bits" of the pineapple in my juicer and come up with the fresh juice. Use dark or amber rum for a more pronounced rum taste. I would do this one again!
