Chinese Five Spice Marinade


If you want to add Chinese flavors to anything you're grilling, then this is a great marinade. Make this marinade a day in advance to get the most out of the flavors. It's perfect of beef and poultry.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: Makes 1 2/3 cups


  • 2/3 cup minced green onions
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons chili oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons five-spice powder


Combine all ingredients and well well. Great on beef or poultry. Make a day in advance to enhance flavors but this one shouldn't be stored too long.
