Aunt Kris's Teriyaki Marinade
1/3 cup white vinegar
2/3 cup soy sauce
3 T dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1-2 inches ginger, pressed
Mix all ingredients. I press both my garlic and my ginger in a high quality garlic press. There is virtually no need to peel either. Add as much black pepper as you'd like
Marinate your meat for at least one hour (up to 6 hours) before grilling. Keep in mind, the vinegar will act as a tenderizer and can change the texture of the chicken if it sits too long.
Drain, grill and enjoy. Trust me, I know the combination sounds a bit odd, but it is delicious.
