Korean Marinade For Meat (For up to 5 pds. of meat)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 10 mins

Delicious marinade given to me years ago by a Korean woman. Excellent for any kind of meat- beef, roast, chicken, pork, ribs, and shrimp. Prep time does not include slicing meat, and cook time depends on what you are cooking and by what method, and does not include marinading time. )The longer the marinading time, the better!). Enjoy!

I used this recipes several times to marinate my short ribs, and they come out delicious every time. But I like to add a lot of garlic so I add about 2 tablespoons of minced garlic and I puree chopped onions until I get half a cup and add that to the marinade too.

I made this twice already, once with pork rips and then pork chops I followed the recipe except that I didn't use msg. This is one of my favourite marinades and I find it very tasty, with a few flavours but none overpowering the meat. I'm planning to try it with beef, too. Thank you for posting it, I feel my cooking is improving with simple tasty recipes like these!
