Korean BBQ Marinade
Makes 1 cup
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.
- ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
- ⅓ cup sugar
- ¼ cup sherry, sake, or mirin
- 6 cloves garlic, minced (2 Tbs.)
- 1 Tbs. sesame oil
