Ketchup Marinade for Steak or Chicken

READY IN: 8hrs 5mins
Recipe by momthecook 2

This is a great marinade for barbecuing, since you don't have to add anything while the steak or chicken is cooking, but it gets a great barbecue sauce flavour.

As a mother of kids who can't live without ketchup...this was a huge hit! Instead of grilling, I doubled the recipe and pored the marinade and chicken into a 9x13 dish and baked it at 400 for 30 minutes. My kids used it as dipping sauce and slathered it on their potatoes. Lol!
