  • Teriyaki beef or pork marinade:  ½ cup sugar, ½ cup soy sauce, ½ cup ketchup, 1 tsp garlic powder, 2 tsp ground ginger. Whisk well to combine and add 1 pound of cubed beef or pork steak. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Maple chicken marinade: 2 tsp olive oil, 1 Tbs grated ginger, 2 cloves minced garlic, ½ cup teriyaki sauce, 3 Tbs maple syrup, ½ cup chicken broth, 2 Tbs orange juice, 1 tsp sriracha sauce, 1 Tbs cornstarch, 1 Tbs water.
