Homemade Marinade

I got this recipe from a coworker after I commented on how delicious her lunch smelled one day. She happened to still have it saved on her phone after sharing it with a friend of hers, and I went home and mixed it up that night.

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp ketchup
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion salt
1/4 tsp black pepper



My coworker always uses this to make shish kabobs, and marinates the pre-cubed meat (chicken, steak, whatever you wish) in the refrigerator over night, and marinates the vegetables in the fridge for 3-4 hours. She will then use the left-over marinade from the vegetables to baste the food while it grills.


I’ve only used it for chicken so far, but I’m absolutely in love. It’s got great flavor, without being over-powering.

What’s your favorite marinade? Questions and comments are welcome, as always!
