CHINESE MARINATED MEAT
Broiled beef in a Chinese marinade
After frequenting a local Chinese restraunt, I finally asked
for the recipe for the marinade for the meat that came on
skewers on the pu pu platter. I was given a list of
ingredients with instructions like "heavy on this, light on
this". I devised my own amounts from this list. I served it
to my family and they enjoyed it, so I feel confident sending
it to mod.recipes.
Ingredients(about 1 cup)
- 1/4 cup dry sherry
(cooking sherry will do)
- 2 Tbsp light soy sauce
- 1/4 cup dark soy sauce
- 2 1/2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 1/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
(or use the juice from the can of pineapple chunks listed below)
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp white pepper
- 2 Tbsp ginger root,
cut into thin
- 1 1/2 lb sirloin tip
- 12 oz pineapple chunks
Combine the ingredients for the marinade; stir well.
Cut meat into bite-size chunks, and place on skewers with 2 or 3 chunks of
pineapple in between the meat pieces.
Marinate the skewers overnight, in a covered container, in the refrigerator.
To cook, broil the meat for about 10 minutes (depends on the size of
the chunks). When the weather permits, grilling it outdoors on skewers is
You may need to double the marinade recipe.
I use a tupperware container made especially
for marinating. Any container will do, but it's tough having
to turn over all those skewers.
The hoisin sauce, ginger root, and light soy
sauce should be available in any good grocery store.
Comments, revisions, and/or additions will be appreciated.
5 minutes preparation, 12 hours marinating, 10 minutes cooking.
Approximate measurement OK.
