Asian marinade for pork and chicken, also a perfect basting sauce for pork, chicken

Jane Whittaker


Normally I don't measure when I throw a marinade together, and bet neither do any of you.
This combination of flavors is really nice, and I would recommend using all of them, but of course if you want to change the proportions, feel free.
I also would use a fresh pineapple because you can get some nice big chunks that way, canned tidbits are kind of puny.
This also is a beautiful basting sauce for rotissire.

How to Make Asian marinade for pork and chicken, also a perfect basting sauce for pork, chicken


  1. Early in the day put your pork or chicken in a gallon zip lock bag.
  2. To that add the onion, garlic, chili sauce teriyaki sauce, white wine, pineapple juice, sesame oil, and rice vinegar.
  3. Rotate bag to blend, then put in a shallow container (in case of leaks). Through out the day I give the bag a turn. Longer marinating is better for this.
  4. Cut your pineapple and chosen veggies into 1 inch chunks.
  5. The onion, cut it into 6 wedges separate some of the layers, use 3 layers per each time you thread your veggies
  6. Preheat grill to medium high while you thread your ka bobs. Your order is up to you, but I recommend putting a piece of pineapple next to your meat.
  7. Grill, turning from time to time until a beautiful golden brown.
  8. Serve with rice, or a nice macaroni or potato salad, and fresh fruit.
