Uncle Bill's Soy-Ginger Marinade

READY IN: 10mins
YIELD: 1 1/2 cups


  • 12
  • 14
    cup pancake syrup
  • 6
    garlic cloves, minced
  • 1
    tablespoon finely grated fresh gingerroot
  • 1
    teaspoon dry mustard
  • 12
    teaspoon sesame oil
  • 18
    teaspoon Tabasco sauce or 1/8 teaspoon red hot pepper sauce
  • 34
    cup beer, of your choice


  • In a mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients except beer; stir well.
  • Now add beer and stir gently so the marinade does not foam too much.
  • Prepare steaks,using a knife by scoring any fatty outside areas on steaks.
  • This prevents the steaks from curling.
  • Place steaks in a casserole dish.
  • Pour marinade over and using a fork, punch holes in the steaks so the marinade penetrates the steaks; punch both sides.
  • Cover and marinate for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator before cooking.
  • You may marinate for a longer period if desired.
  • This marinade is also excellent for roasts.
  • Barbecue or fry steaks to your desired doneness.
  • You can also substitute and use a dry red wine instead of beer.
  • Steaks should be about 1 inch in thickness.
  • Rib-eye steaks can be marinated for a different flavor, but I do not recommend as the rib eyes are good with some pepper and granulated garlic powder.
  • If you are using Chuck Steaks, I suggest that you marinate for at least 24 hours or longer.
  • This marinade is excellent to marinate roast beef of your choice.
