Korean BBQ Marinade

For a different style of barbecue, try this version of bulgogi, a traditional Korean dish that features a sweet soy marinade. Marinate 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of sliced tofu, tempeh, seitan, or portobello mushroom caps for 30 minutes to 3 hours, then sear over high heat until caramelized around the edges. Top with toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
