    I like this marinade. I have actually used it to marinate meat for stir-fry, not just yakitori. I didn't have sake, so I used white wine instead and it still turned out good. I will definately make again.  -  26 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Fantastic! We used this to marinate chicken for 45 minutes and then grilled it. Had a great slightly-sweet flavor to it. Will definitely use again!  -  17 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
