This sweet, fruity marinade has the power of pineapple and cider vinegar to work its way into the meat. Add to this a collection of flavors that turn any cut of pork or chicken into something truly great.


  • 1 cup/240 mL crushed pineapple
  • 1/3 cup/80 mL soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup/80 mL honey
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL cider vinegar
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL powdered cloves

Steps to Make It

Mix all ingredients together in a non-corrosive (non-metal) bowl. Let mixture sit for 15 minutes before using or store in a glass or plastic airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Marinate pork in mixture for 2-8 hours. For chicken, marinate for 2-4 hours. The mixture can also be used on vegetables, tofu, fish and seafood with a 15-30 minute marinating time.
