This marinade is equally good for pork, chicken or salmon.

Asian Marinade - 2 Cups

¾ ounce peeled fresh gingerroot, cut into ½-inch pieces 2 garlic cloves, peeled ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce ¹⁄³ cup canola or other vegetable oil ¼ cup + ½ tablespoon hoisin sauce ¼ cup + ½ tablespoon Asian sesame oil ¼ cup + ½ tablespoon rice wine vinegar ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper


Place the gingerroot and garlic in the work bowl. Pulse on Chop 5 times. Scrape the sides and bottom of the work bowl. Add the remaining ingredients; chop until smooth, about 15 seconds. Transfer to a container, cover and refrigerate if not using immediately. Marinate meat or seafood for approximately 2 hours before roasting or grilling. Cooking Suggestion: Pour ²⁄³ of the marinade into a re-sealable plastic bag and add two 1-pound trimmed pork tenderloins. Coat the meat thoroughly with the marinade and refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove the tenderloins from the marinade and place on a rack; discard the marinade. Roast in a preheated 475°F oven for 20 to 22 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. Remove from oven. The temperature of the meat should be about 150°F; it will rise to 160-165°F while resting. Let rest for 10 minutes; slice and serve with remaining reserved marinade drizzled over the meat.


Servings: Makes about 2 cups
