I stole this off of a Deep South web-page. If you wanted to make this more like the verities of the original marinade, use a touch of Mesquite smoke. If you wish to have it more like a teriyaki, then use a bit of brown sugar and substitute the vinegar for pineapple juice, but watch it carefully, or it will burn on the grill.
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey
- 1⁄4 cup molasses
- 1⁄4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- Combine in saucepan. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. When it's cool, put in one of your own double-locked gallon sized zip bags so you can throw it away and NO MESS!
- Use to marinate shrimp or scallops for 1 hour or beef, chicken, or pork in the refrigerator overnight. Flip the package over a few times during the marinating time.
- It will do about 2 - 4 medium 1 inch stakes or about 1/2 of a chicken.
- Be careful with shellfish and only marinade for an hour or less, as the taste will take over!
- Use to baste the shellfish or meat as it is grilled or broiled.
- Makes about 2 cups of Marinade.
WOW! I marinaded sirloin tips for 24-hours and the flavor was delicious! Also the acid helped to tenderize the meat substantially. Thanks for posting! Made for Diabetic Forum Pool Party tag game.
