My mom got this recipe a couple of years ago from our friend, Mrs. Gullickson. She used it to make chicken tenders that were fabulous and not dried out at all. My dad usually is not a fan of chicken because it always gets dried out, but he likes it when we use this marinade.
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp meat tenderizer (see pic below)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
Combine all ingredients. Pour over raw meat of your choice. Marinade anywhere from 15 min – all day.
We’ve used this marinade for pork chops, chicken, and steaks.
I think the meat tenderizer is key to juicy, tender meat.
