meat marinade

I don't remember where I got this, but it is a fabulous marinade for steak or other meat. We use it for steaks or kabobs. It's simple and quick to throw together. We grilled for our very first time on Saturday. We feel pretty cool. Since this is a new venture for us and we plan on doing it often, I picked up How To Grill Everything by Steven Raichlen. I've watched his cooking show a few times and am amazed at what he can do with a grill. Basically, you can grill anything and everything. The big debate was choosing if we wanted to get a charcoal or a gas grill. We both decided on charcoal because of the supposed taste, and we both have a fear of blowing ourselves up with the propane tank. (And don't forget about HF's fear of jump-starting a car in the rain.) It took us a million years to figure out how to use it and then to cook our food, but we did it! Anyway, here's the marinade recipe. We call it Yummy Marinade.

2 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger, or 1 tsp. ground
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. hot red pepper flakes.

Mix all ingredients together then place in gallon zip-lock bag. Add meat and let marinate for desired amount of time, turning over once halfway through time to allow marinade to coat all sides of meat.

Happy grilling!
