Marinade Essentials: Asian Fusion Sauce

Andy Anderson !


This is my go-to marinade and brushing sauce when I’m grilling chicken, pork, or beef. The mixture of the ingredients imparts a sweet/sour Asian flavor that’s wonderful on the palette.

What I love about this recipe, is that it doesn’t overpower the meal… You get great flavor, but you can still taste the other ingredients.

It’s simple to construct, and will last several weeks, if tightly sealed in the refrigerator.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Marinade Essentials: Asian Fusion Sauce


  2. Chef’s Note: I will admit that, when it comes to sauces and marinades, I have been on a tear. But, I am so sick and tired of that bottled junk that passes for sauce. And when you put it on your chicken, pork or beef, it coats it in this goopy mess that is so overpowering, you no longer taste the original ingredient. So, down with most bottled sauces, an up with homemade. Let the revolution begin!!!
  3. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Place all the ingredients into a small saucepan.
  5. Slowly bring up to a simmer, while stirring.
  6. Remove from heat, place into a sealable glass container, and allow to cool.
  7. Seal, and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  9. Use this sauce as an overnight marinade for chicken, pork, or beef.
  10. Grill, pan fry, or bake until cooked to your desire, and brush on additional marinade while cooking. Enjoy.
  11. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
