Oriental marinade/sauce like Yoshida sauce

Deb Crane


I have been playing with a sauce for some time to try to duplicate a sauce/marinade called Yoshida. Seems our local Sam's club has stopped carrying this sauce. This might even surpass the store bought! It makes around 3 1/2-4 cups and keeps well in the refrigerator for as long as soy sauce keeps. Great on chicken,pork,beef,tofu vegetables.... it is an all- purpose marinade that is thick and very flavorful. Great for the grill or stir fry. The whole family agrees that it is awesome. :)
