"I got this recipe from a friend of mine. It is so easy to make and works for chicken, pork, beef or venison. Cook time is "marinating" time."

"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!"
"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!"
"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!"
"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."
"We used this marinade for chicken kabobs (with red onion, green pepper and fresh pineapple) - WOW! It was fabulous! The only change I made was that I didn't marinade the veggies. Instead, I brushed the marinade over the whole kabob before grilling. The marinade is sweet, but not too sweet! (If that makes any sense!) Combined with that fabulous grilled flavor, it was wonderful! Thank you so much for a great recipe that I can make without an extra trip to the store!"
"This was a hit at our house. Even my picky kids loved it. Super easy and super yummy! :-)"
"Yes this marinade is delicious! My family and I loved it and it is so easy to make. Will be using this recipe for many years to come. Thank you jenjill!"
"Followed the recipe with a minor decrease in the amount of sugar (about 1/3 cup), added an ounce or so of beer to keep the sauce from burning before I added them to the skewers. Teenager loved it. Added pineapple, shrimp and mushrooms to the other items mentioned."
"luved it will never change a thing this is a recipe for all year round ;-)"
"Really good! Marinade couldn't be faster or easier. Made two batches, one chicken, one beef. Skewered the beef with yellow cherry tomatoes, purple onion, green pepper, and mushrooms. Made chicken only kabobs. Poured marinade over skewers and grilled. Served with jasmine rice, corn on the cob, and apple pie for a yummy dinner. Next time I'll use some fresh pineapple chunks and veggies with the chicken, too. There's a hint of sweetness, enough to aid in carmelization of the meat without being too sweet. Sugar could be cut back according to preference, though. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"My family absolutely loved this marinade. I used zucchini, mushrooms and chicken and every last bite was gone. We would love to try this same marinade with chicken over brown rice. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!"
"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,"
"Love it! Made chicken kabobs last night. Had unexpected guests (4) to show right as I was taking food off the grill. I only got to have 2 small cubes of the chicken but I loved it. Now have 3 chicken breasts marinating right now for supper tonight. I'm also going to marinate a turkey breast in this as well. Found myself testing the marinade many times. Thank you."
"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."
"Used it on veggie kabobs. Very tasty."
"So sweet and delicious! And I always have the ingredients on hand. Thank you jenjill!!!"
"Fantastic flavor, will make again! We made these and some baked beans (Recipe #65829) 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!"
