and please don't say soy sauce!!! I'm trying to marinate a flank steak to grill for dinner tonight, and just realized I'm all out of both. So, what can I use instead??

    Try a combo of the following:

    Malt or red wine vinegar
    Minced garlic
    Minced ginger
    red wine

    If you've got some achovies, go ahead of chop them up and throw them in there as well.

      I like ginger, garlic, molasses, vinegar, and lime juice.

          ha-ha! I would, but that would mean eating after 8pm, which isn't doable...

          Fish sauce.

            20% vinegar

            40% fish sauce

            20% tamarind juice

            10% soy sauce

            10% molasses.

            It actually works.

            But the question is, why? L&P always has coupons, always goes on sale, and keeps perfectly in a dark cupboard for years unopened. Gotta love that paper wrapper and that brown bottle.
