  • 2 cups low sodium soy sauce
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 inch piece ginger root grated
  • 2 cloves garlic grated or minced
  • ¼ cup sesame seed oil
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped (green and white parts)


  • Slice the green onions thinly.
  • Mince the garlic.
  • Grate the fresh ginger.
  • Combine all ingredients in a Ziploc bag. Mix well and add meat. To be safe, I put the Ziploc bag in a large bowl in case it springs a leak. 
  • Be sure to remove the meat from the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes prior to grilling. 
  • Marinade 2-3 pounds of steak or chicken about 2 hours, turning occasionally. If using shrimp or tofu, reduce marinade time to 20-30 minutes. Grill & enjoy!
