Irrestistable marinade
  • 1 or 2 (10 oz.) bottles lite soy sauce
  • 1 oz. bourbon
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 clove fresh garlic--minced
  • 1 T. oil
  • 1 t. grated fresh ginger
  • a dash (or more) pepper
  1. Blend all ingredients and allow flavors to marry.Prepare shish kabobs on soaked sticks. Beef tenderloin and veggies of choice, along with fresh pineapple make great choices.
  2. Allow shish kabobs to marinate until cooking time. The possibilities are endless. This marinade is great on any meat, poultry, or seafood. Cook over an open grill until done.
  3. I have seen some serious parties come to a halt when these are grilled. If per chance you fix too many (which is not likely) they will keep in the fridge for several days in the marinade.
I have been fortunate to obtain this recipe from my honey. It is my understanding that it is an old recipe. I can confirm that it can lead to the most incredible shish kabobs ever. He obtained the recipe from his friend's mother years ago.
