Asian marinade for meats – gluten free and great for a barbecue

This is enough marinade for two large steaks, or four smaller chops.  You can of course double this or whatever, if you are preparing food for a crowd (this goes down well at barbecues) I have made this for years, and it is always popular.  The longer you can marinade your meat the better, overnight is good so that the meat is tenderised.  Every time you go to the fridge for something, pick up the container and give it a shake or flip it over, just to keep the marinade circulating and make sure all the meat is exposed to the marinade.

Asian marinade

Asian marinade

1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce

1 tbsp water

1 tbsp vinegar

1/2 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1 tbsp oil

Combine all ingredients and place in a container you can seal well.  Place meat in container and ensure that the marinade covers the meat.  Marinade overnight if possible.  When ready to cook, lift the meat out of the marinade with tongs and sear on both sides, then turn heat down to low and pour marinade over meat to finish cooking.  The marinade should thicken even more when cooking, you can spoon it over the cooked meat when ready.
