    Not too difficult to prepare and very tasty  -  02 May 2014


    Mega tasty and extra easy recipe - well balanced tastes of sweet, sour, salt and hot, the marinade itself sticks well to the meat and doesn't burn itself when barbecued as many marinades., leaving the meat itself full of taste and moisture. I served it with radish and cucumber salad.  -  25 Jun 2017
