Sixty Days

Sixty Days and CountingSixty Days and Counting by Kim Stanley Robinson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What I do is mix soy sauce and a dry white wine about half and half, and then add a big dash of tarragon vinegar, and some heaping spoonfuls of brown sugar, and a tablespoon of olive oil and about a teaspoon each of ginger and mustard powder, and a dash of garlic powder Mix that up and the longer you marinate things in it the better, but just dipping it in will do to.. Best on veggies, chicken, and flank steak. Sear the meat and then cook at a lower heat.
