This was really good. Salty and sweet at the same time. Because of the high sugar content, it burns really easily so be careful to cook low and slow.
I did a little less sugar and added 3 tsp. of brown sugar. Also I added chives for color. Put them on the grill and they were good. I might try a little less soy sauce next time because I don't like salty food, but others that ate it loved it as it was!!
I followed the recipe exactly & marinated the meat for 48 hours in a ziploc bag. I was out of charcoal & had to bake my shishkabobs. I baked them at 325 degrees for 40 minutes, rotating them every 10 minutes and using the marinade as a basting sauce. My family loved it!
I like this even better than my usual marinade recipe. The ketchup adds a nice flavour and thickens the marinade at the same time. I did the cut sugar back a bit. This is a keeper, thx!
This marinade is awesome! Everyone that has tried it has asked for the recipe. I love that its a thicker sauce so I don't have to keep brushing it on. It goes with everything ~ LOVE IT!!
This recipe is so easy and so ridiculously good that I had to review it! I followed the recipe exactly except I doubled the recipe and used half for marinade and heated the other half on the stove to use as a drizzle after the shish kabobs were done. Put the kabobs on top of some jasmine rice and drizzle with the extra sauce and you have a dish that is better than what any restaurant would have to offer!
I made this for my boys' 18th birthday party and it fed a crowd of 6 18-year-olds. I used 2.5 pounds of steak and two white onions, one red onion, one red bell pepper, on big summer squash and two green peppers. I served with rice to help fill their tummies. IT WAS A BIG HIT. The boys loved the marinade but I thought it had waaaaaaay too much sugar. I would cut the sugar back to a 1/4 cup and it would be just right (considering that ketchup is full of sugar too.).. I might also use fresh ginger, chopped as opposed to the powdered.
Very easy marinade! I used it on shrimp, chicken, mushrooms,
Wow! Loved it! Like another recommended, I took about 3 tbsp of regular sugar off and put in 3 tbsp brown sugar, RAVE reviews from the entire dinner party.
Fantastic flavor, will make again! We made these and some baked beans (Baked Beans) and my husband and I like the sauce from the beans on the meat. In fact, my husband took the stuff off of the skewers and mixed it in with the beans! Weird, but really good!
