Saipan Marinade Mix

Connie "Kiyu" Guerrero


I make this sauce using what we all use for sauce in the Marianas, but over the years it has gained a few more special "extras". When we have parties using this sauce there aren't any leftovers!!

How to Make Saipan Marinade Mix


  1. # I cut this mix in half and add chili pepper and chili pepper oil to MY half. The other half is for those who can't hang with the chili!
  2. I found that if we make this the WEEK before we need it and then marinate/massage the meat for a day or two and then put it in the freezer, the meat will come right off the bone while cooking; either on the grill or in the oven.
  3. So delicious and has a sweet and tangy taste!
