Savoury Chinese Turkey Meat Marinade

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Top Review by marcoandrita

Excellent - we loved the moist meat and great flavor. I marinated a turkey tenderloin two days, wrapped it in foil and baked for 40 minutes. Let it rest for a bit. Save the drippings from the foil wrapping for a side dipping sauce- my husband's favorite, which it does not need. Loved it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix everything together.
  2. Makes 1 cup; should have 1 cup for each 2-3 lbs of turkey.
  3. Marinade between 4 and 24 hours depending on thickness of turkey.
  4. For a turkey I do overnight and at least 24 hours.
  5. I baste often and will inject marinade under the skin and into the meat with my baster.
  6. This is a BBQ recipe using either a BBQ rotisserie or just treating the BBQ like an oven.
  7. I always baste during the grilling process.
  8. Just cook till the turkey registers done with a thermometer.
  9. Cook at least 20 minutes per lb.
  10. Enjoy!
