Perfect 5 Minute Marinade

by Andie Mitchell on May 8, 2012




Could not be easier. Combine equal parts of these three ingredients and slather the mixture onto beef, chicken, or pork. Marinate for at least 1 hour before cooking.

1/4 cup barbecue sauce  +  1/4 cup teriyaki sauce  +  1/4 cup brown sugar

Simple and delicious – I love the combination of bbq sauce and terriyaki! I was planning to do kabobs this weekend – will be giving this a try. Thanks for sharing!

This does look easy! BTW: How do you calculate calories for the marinaded meat? Does most of it just get cooked off?

How timely! We are doing steak kabobs this weekend. This marinade will be perfect!

You have such a gift, such a talent for perfectly describing and capturing images that make my mouth drool!

I used to think salads were the most boring thing on this planet until you made them come alive!

I hope you know how talented you are. The very first thing I do each day when I come into work is click on your site. You make my day :) Don’t ever change, you’re perfect just the way you are!

What cut of meat is that? Looks so good. This may be on the mothers day menu!

I miss Market Basket =[

Don’t you worry about the sodium level in the teriyaki??


Kim @ Living, Laughing & Losing May 9, 2012 at 8:47 am it lunch time yet? That looks amazing!!!


Casey May 9, 2012 at 9:07 am

What kind of meat is that and how did you cook it?

Yum. Damn, now I wish I had picked up some beef at the store yesterday! Curses.

I enjoy this because I actually own all the necessary things… And soy sauce in anything just makes it that much more flavorful!

And well done on making raw meat look appetising, not always an easy task in photography!

Your ginger marinade is still my forever favorite :)

Can not wait to try this! Btw, I’m a new reader, just catching up. I have to say this is the best written and illustrated fitness/weight loss blog I have come across. A tip of my cyber-hat to you.


Amy May 11, 2012 at 9:04 am

What a great simple combo! Can’t wait to try it out!


Nicola May 13, 2012 at 2:06 am

Looks yummy. Love how the meat caramelizes with marinates like this – will add this to my recipe list :)


Melissa @ SquatsandSquash May 14, 2012 at 5:49 pm

my husband will love this! he’s always looking for simple marinades that dont come from a bottle!!


Jackie May 15, 2012 at 1:16 pm

This looks so delicious and so easy — it looks like something even *I* could make (and I can’t make much)! Thank you for sharing this with us!

You saved my butt with this recipe this morning! I had to marinate some steaks for a bbq with friends for tonight, but I also had to race around and get ready for work! Dumped all these ingredients together and am letting the steaks sit in the fridge today. I think it’ll be very yummy!


Felicia May 20, 2012 at 6:52 am

I’m marinating some drumettes right now. Can’t wait to taste how they turn out! What cut of beef is pictured below. I need to buy some of that! Thanks for sharing. Love your blog and your love of a good bakery cake from the Northeast. Can’t beat it.
