Garlicy Sweet Marinade

I started developing this recipe years ago, adding and subtracting, finally achieving the final product. I enjoy testing marinades (before I put the raw meat in) to make sure I have a balance of flavors.

Garlic makes my taste buds happy, so almost all my savory recipes include the ingredient. The honey, brown sugar, and garlic mingle quite nicely, giving you a sweetish and garlicy taste.

  • 1/4 heaping cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
Whisk all the ingredients together, the honey will take a little while to get super liquidy. I like to separate the crushed garlic so that the flavor spreads out. Place in a ziplock bag with steak and marinate in the fridge for at least 2 1/2 hours. If you are making kabobs, make sure to have the meat chopped up before marinating.

I particularly enjoy using the marinade for kabobs. It tends to drip onto the veggies, giving them some kapow! Delightful!

Peppers, Mushrooms and Onions...yum!

Zucchini and onions, all homegrown and delicious.
