Want to get that great Teriyaki flavor into your favorite dish? This marinade is sure to add flavor to whatever you're grilling. This marinade works particularly well with pork and poultry. You can make an extra batch, boil it down until thickened and drizzle on top of sliced grilled meats and vegetables.

Roasted pork with turnips greens and rice, Member ThaddaeusV

I used this recipe for a pork sirloin roast. I substituted red wine vinegar for white vinegar, and powdered ginger for fresh, because that's what I had, and subsituted brown sugar for white because brown sugar rocks. I didn't have any onion powder, so I sauteed some onions in the bottom of my dutch oven and then put the roast on top of them, after marinating overnight. While the roast was roasting, I used the marinade, with about equal measure of water, to cook some rice. When the roast was done, I set it aside to rest, and poured off some of the fat from the pan (I mixed it into the rice), and then sauteed some turnip greens in the fat, along with the onions. It was awesome.
