Here's the recipe with my notes:
Damn Good Asian-Style Marinade
1/2 C veggie oil
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1/2 C soy sauce (I usually use the reduced-sodium one)
1/4 C packed brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1-inch piece ginger, grated
1/4 C fresh lime juice (about 2 medium limes)
2 pounds of meat (chicken, steak and pork are all delicious)
Depending on how many dishes you want to wash, you can throw everything in the food processor or blender to combine. I'm usually too lazy for that, so I just mix it all up with a whisk.
Put your meat in a dish or ziplock bag and cover with marinade. Marinate overnight. (I've been known to decide to make this in the afternoon, so if you're doin' the last minute thing, try to marinate it for at least an hour.)
When you're ready to eat, fire up the grill, remove the meat from the marinade, and cook it till it's done. Obviously, the amount of time will depend on the meat you went with.
Sit back and prepare to make yummy noises.
We had ours with steamed rice, corn on the cob, and cucumber chips. And homemade sweet chili sauce that I made with green jalapenos this last time. Good stuff.
