This is the only teriyaki marinade recipe you'll ever need! All you need are four ingredients. We love it on grilled chicken or shrimp. This is the only teriyaki marinade recipe you'll ever need! All you need are four ingredients. We love it on grilled chicken or shrimp.
Number of Servings: 1


    6 oz can pineapple juice
    6 oz soy sauce
    1 tsp ground ginger or 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
    1 tsp garlic powder or 1 Tbsp minced fresh garlic


Mix ingredients together. Pour over meat to be marinated ( up to 2.5 lbs of meat)
(It is preferable to have the marinade cover the meat but if it doesn't and you have a air-tight container that you can flip, that will work... just remember to flip the meat half-way through the marinade time.)
The bigger the piece of meat, the longer it needs to marinate.Generally speaking, we would marinate chicken and smaller individual pork or beef steaks for about 35-45 minutes depending on how flavorful we wanted it. For a flank steak or roast, we would double the recipe and marinate for at least 2 hours. Very flavorful.
Also very good with low-sodium soy sauce.

  • Replace soy sauce with Braggs Liquid Aminos and that will cut way down on the sodium. It tastes a lot like soy sauce. - 7/29/11

    You are most welcome. I am so glad that people are loving this marinade. It is the one that has been used most in my house as I was growing up and I still use it more than any other marinade in my own house.

  • Using reduced sodium soy would help cut down on the sodium. I also add sliced green onions, sesame seeds and sometimes chopped cilantro. - 6/11/09

    To be honest, I couldn't find a proper listing for low-sodium soy sauce and didn't have my bottle handy to input the nutritional information but I agree that it works well with it. In my opinion, it actually works better with the low-sodium soy sauce because then the meat doesn't get too salty.

  • if you freeze your fresh ginger then gjust grate over the meat; you get refreshing taste and lots of compliments. - 6/10/09

    Thank you much for that tip. I will have to keep that in mind for when I go grocery shopping next.
