Mom's Marvelous Marinade for Steak or Pork Kabobs

I just love this marinade. It reminds me of summer grilling: Dad outside tending the grill with a frosty mug of some unusual beer; Mom inside making her standard white rice, cutting a loaf of french bread, sampling a slice spread with margarine; guacamole and chips sitting on the counter to nibble on; the wonderful smell from the combination of all of these things. Summer.

Mom always used this marinade for beef kabobs, but the sweetness works really well with pork also. It can be used for larger cuts of meats too, not just kabobs--although the smaller surface area of the meat means more marinade coating--yum! I think I'll try this with a slow cooker roast next--pulled pork/beef sandwiches would be great. (Rump roast in a slow cooker with all of the marinade for about 10hrs. on low). I usually reserve a little marinade to coat grilled veggies. Continue for recipe.

Mom's Marinade

1 cup beef broth
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup wine vinegar
4 tablespoons oil
4 cloves garlic

Whisk all ingredients together.
Marinate with meat at least several hours, preferably overnight.
