A great marinade to use before grilling or as a precursor to stir-fries. :)
- 1⁄4 cup sesame seeds
- 2⁄3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup light soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Heat small skillet over high heat; when hot, add sesame seeds and swirl until seeds become light brown and fragrant.
- Remove from heat.
- When seeds are cool, combine with other ingredients.
- Use marinade on meats several hours before cooking.
I used a bit more sesame oil and red pepper than in the original recipe, but really enjoyed the way it turned out. I let chicken marinate overnight in this, then stir-fried the chicken, added some vegetables, and poured in a bit of the leftover marinade. It made a great dinner over rice.
