"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."

Servings Per Recipe: 1
"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!!"
"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!"
"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!"
"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."
"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!"
"Made this tonight and it was very, very good. I will be making this again, and again, and again. My whole family loved this recipe. Thanks for posting."
"WOW! I was afraid it was going to be more like a teryaki sauce, but it was not. This is the perfect base sauce to add your favorite spices to for a custom marinade. Very yummy! We only marinated about 2 hours, since we did not plan ahead and it still came out WONDERFUL! I will be using this one on company!"
"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!!"
