Magic (Honey Soy Ginger Garlic) Marinade

I use this to marinade pretty much everything that is ‘general purpose’ before it goes on the grill.

Use a quart slide-lock ziplock and chop/pour everything into that. I find it helps to sometimes roll the top of the bag down and place the bag into a large tupperware container. That way everything stays open-side up.

a small handful of garlic, roughly chopped
2-3″ nub of fresh ginger, finely grated
about 1 cup of soy sauce
about 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey
a little squirt of Sriracha sauce

Get as much air out of the bag as possible* before you seal it, shake it up, massage it, add your meat, massage it some more!

Marinate for 30 mins to overnight. Enjoy.

* My friend Buster taught me a neat trick for getting the air out of a marinade bag. Fill a bowl or sink with water, leaving the top of the bag partially unsealed so that air may escape. Submerge the bag as much as possible without letting any water in. When the air is all out and the bag is completely submerged, make a complete seal. Remove the bag from the water, towel it of and leave it to marinate.
