This marinade makes enough for up to 6 lbs of ribs, or a whole small chicken. There is no oil in it to add to the fat from the meat. You could also marinate fish or vegetables in it, the acid would probably 'cook' the fish a little. (Be sure to follow safe handling rules and never consume raw marinade that has had uncooked meat or fish in it.) I used this to flavour some pork ribs that I then braised in the oven in a cast iron Dutch oven, sprinkled with a little more 'Brownulated' sugar to make a crunchy crust.
