I got this recipe from a Thai friend of mine and I use it all the time for marinating chicken, pork and beef. Best if you leave it in the marinade for at least 4 hours. It's up to you after that - you can barbecue, grill or stir fry the meat.
Very good marinade,but for me a little sweet,my wife enjoyed it. - 23 Aug 2010
Great marinade! We don't put in all the sugar the recipe suggests as it is a bit too sweet for our taste buds. Goes really well with beef. - 04 Sep 2016
I used this marinade for fried fish. I eliminated the sesame oil, but added a bit of grated lime peel and lemon grass. I used half to marinade the fish and half to spoon over the fish after it was cooked. Before serving the sauce, I added a few sliced green onions, hot peppers and grated carrots. Everyone loved it! Thank you. - 27 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
