One of the best marinades we have tried. I subbed rice vinegar for the cider vinegar and used the BBQ sauce option. I wasn't sure how honey or liquid smoke were interchangeable so split the difference and used both. I used this on a flank steak. I boiled the marinade while grilling the steak, and thickened it a bit with some cornstarch to make a wonderful sauce for some pasta I was serving.
Now this is Good! What else can I say. I chose not to add the vinegar and add barbecue sauce , honey and garlic to ours. Pictures say more than words. Excellant!
Oh Mama! This stuff was goooooood! Sushiman brought home a dubious-looking piece of meat the other day, and I cut it into "steaks" and had it immersed in this stuff overnight. The next evening I put them on my stove-top grill pan and dubious became delicious! Pineapple juice is not readily available as a drink here so I used the drained juice from a can of pineapples. I also use fresh ginger, lots of it. I freeze my ginger root and then grate it while still frozen on the Microplane and the stuff comes out wonderfully powdery. I used a spicy ketchup and a very generous dose of honey, about twice the amount called for in the recipe. I can't wait to try it out next time with the Liquid Smoke. Marg, this was a major winner, thanks!
