Chinese marinade for pork, chicken or beef
This marinade is ubiquitous in Chinese cuisine.
A marinade such as this can’t really be prescriptive. It will vary depending on your taste, quantity of meat, etc… but it will get better and better the more you do it, to the point where you gauge it all by eye and the extraordinary aromas the marinade imparts.
