I like to prepare a lot of this marinade because it also makes a delicious dipping sauce. Remember that to use a marinade that has touched raw meat as a dipping sauce it must be boiled for five minutes. Use this marinade with Korean Bulgogi or Korean Beef Ribs.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup/120 mL soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL green onion (cut into pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL vinegar (red wine)
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL sesame oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL black pepper

How to Make It

1. Combine all ingredients and mix until sugar is completely dissolved.

2. Used this marinade for 2 to 8 hours depending on the thickness of the meat.
