OK, for those who read my blog and have been asking and asking and ASKING about this recipe, I’m so sorry it took me so long to post it. I just kept forgetting it! And since I am trying to post as many recipes this week as I can, I figured I better finally put this one up.

This can be used as a marinade for beef, chicken, and seafood. If marinating beef, give it at least 5 hours (especially chuck roast and London broil).

If it’s chicken you’re pickin, an hour or 2 would be great. And for seafood (shrimp is quite heavenly with this marinade), you only want to marinade it for 30 minutes, tops.

The vinegar will start to actually cook the seafood after that time period, and that isn’t good eats with this recipe. Also, if using beef, you can substitute red wine vinegar for the white vinegar to give it a more hearty taste. Beef can stand up to red wine vinegar well.

Easy Teriyaki Marinade


1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup white (or red wine) vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon ground ginger(2 tablespoons fresh)
2 teaspoons black pepper
meat of your choice (I use about 2 pounds of meat, but a pound is fine; the meat will have more flavor)


Combine all ingredients in a large ziploc bag. Add meat(or seafood), close the bag, and massage marinade into the meat.

The best cooking method for this is either on the grill or under the broiler. Save the marinade and brush your meat with it while it is cooking.

Make extra marinade and pair this with stir-fried veggies and brown rice. We like to take the new, extra(not the sauce that had the meat in it…yuck!) sauce and drizzle it over the veggies and rice.

I love this easy teriyaki marinade recipe because it doesn’t include miren and all those other “real” teriyaki ingredients that I just don’t have the time or money to search for at the store, but it still tastes like actual teriyaki sauce.

It is yum yum to die for and you must try it today….especially if your grill is a-callin.

    Thanks for this recipe. I made it tonight and used thin pork chops, dumped it in a skillet with all the marinade, cooked them for about 10 minutes, added broccoli and served it over rice. Oh yeah, when I made the marinade I saved about 1/4 cup back and then drizzled that over prepared plates. Yummmmmy.

    This teriyaki sauce was OUTSTANDING! I used to make shrimp teriyaki and we all (even picky 3yo) loved it! Can’t wait to try another recipe!
