After trying many recipes, I found this to be the best. My mother-in-law found this marinade in the Sunday paper for me years ago. Bless her!


  1. This is really good using a thick London Broil thinly sliced across the grain.
  2. Mix ingredients well.
  3. Place meat and sauce in gallon ziplock bag.
  4. Refrigerate and marinade for several hours or overnight.
  5. Grill meat.
  6. Boil remaining sauce and pour over the cooked meat or use it as a dipping sauce.

Barbara, this is the best teriyaki marinade I have found also! I marinated our rib eye steaks for about 4-5 hours and grilled them outside. I saved the marinade and boiled it to use as a dipping sauce and it was excellent! I can't wait to try this same marinade on chicken! Simply delicious! Thank you, Barbara, for an excellent supper!

The only change I made was to use olive oil instead of canola oil, otherwise I made it exactly as given. It was GREAT! This gets a permanent place near the front of my cookbook. I will never need to buy teriyaki marinade again!

This IS a wonderful marinade. The tomato juice and brown sugar add interesting flavours to this marinade. DH made this recipe this afternoon. He had to substitute olive oil for the canola, because that's what we had on hand. The only other variation was that he mixed it all in a food processor. Why? I don't know, but it did work out well, as the garlic was well blended with the rest of the marinade. It tasted so good, he said he ate about 5 big spoonfuls before actually marinating some turkey tenderloins. As you suggested, we boiled down the remainder of the marinade, using some for a basting sauce and the rest as a dipping sauce. It was excellent. Thank you so much for this recipe. I can see this working well on beef, pork, chicken and turkey. We will be enjoying this recipe all summer.
