Fantastic Korean Style Marinade for Beef, Pork or Chicken (recipezaar)

1/3 c soy sauce
1/3 c water
1 1/2 T white vinegar
2 T brown sugar
1 T honey
1T sesame oil
2 T garlic
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 t coarsely ground black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper

In a bowl whisk together all marinade ingredients together until the sugar granules are completely dissolved. Pour the marinade over the meat and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8-24 hours. Remove the meat and shake off excess marinade. Place the meat in a pan and allow to come down to room temperature (this will take a few hours). Grill as desired. There should be enough marinade for about 1 lbs of beef or chicken. The meat needs to come down to almost room temperature before grilling so plan well ahead, also there is a marinating time of 8 – 24 hours, you may omit the cayenne completely if desired or adjust to suit heat level.
