This post is inspired by Kenmore Grills. The recipe is inspired by Aunt Margie.
I am not exaggerating; this super simple marinade recipe makes for the worlds best BBQ vegetables. My mom started using it a few years ago, and I'd request them every time I went home to visit. After Travis and I bought a grill a few weeks ago it was the first thing I made! I'm not sure where Mom got the recipe from, but I'm guessing it was in the family since the only title she has for it is:
"Aunt Margie's Teriyaki Marinade"
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 can of pineapple slices (save the juice!)
- 2 T. sugar
- 1 tsp. ground ginger
- 1-2 minced garlic cloves
Slice up the pineapple slices into quarters, and add them and the pineapple juice to a big bowl (with lid) with the rest of the ingredients. Add whatever other vegetables to the marinade that you'd like. I prefer 1 big can of whole potatoes, a package of mushrooms, and 1/2 sweet onion. Bell peppers also work great! Let the veggies sit in the marinade in the fridge for at least 2 hours (half a day is preferable.)
When it's time to BBQ either put the veggies on skewers, or get one of them fancy roasting baskets to just throw them into.
When Travis and I got our grill we weren't sure how often we'd actually use it so we went with a pretty basic model. We've been using it 2-3 times a month so I know it's only a (short) matter of time before we upgrade. As you can see we hardly have room on ours for some veggies and his little bit of meat!
Grills make the best Fathers Day gifts. When looking around we really liked the Kenmore Elite line.
