LOOKING for: Barbecue Marinade
I would like to know if anyone has a favorite recipe for barbecue sauce which includes fresh herbs. I'll be needing this sauce for basting, and to be served at the table, too. I am a bit sketchy about this... can one sauce do double duty? I have perfected a marinade that is sweet and spicy (soy sauce, vinegar/lemon, sugar....). I need a good flavorful basting sauce/table sauce that would go well with meat and veggies. I am vegetarian, but I cook for meat lovers as well.
And... whats the difference between a marinade/sop/mop/baste/sauce and when does it go on the meat? I heard that bastes should contain no (or at least, very little) sugar, because it burns on the grill. However, I want a good finishing sauce that is slightly sweet. Does anyone have ideas on how to do this? Use different mixtures, perhaps? And apply it off the grill, once the meat is cooked?
Thanks so much!
