Oriental Beef Marinade

This weekend I was looking for an oriental style steak marinade but wanted one without the added sugars of many Asian cooking sauces.

This made a great marinade and flipping the steaks a few times on the grill cooked perfectly without burning.  It would also make a great marinade/stir fry sauce for veggie "beef" strips.

Asian Steak Marinade

1/3 cup Hoisin sauce
3 Tablespoons soy sauce or coconut aminos
2 Tablespoons Mirin (Japanese cooking wine)
1 and 1/2 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon powdered garlic
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh ginger.
dash of cracked pepper

Mix together and marinate steaks in a gallon zip lock bag for 2-4 hours.  Drain and grill.


  1. ooh, that looks delicious! It's so true that Asian marinates tend to have sugar added. I'll bet this one is just savory and very nice. I'm going to have to try it myself!
