There's more to a great teriyaki marinade than just buying a bottle at the store. This marinade combines pineapple juice, soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic to give you a hearty marinade that works on practically every cut of meat. Teriyaki is a crowd-pleaser because it's hearty enough to satisfy big appetites but subtle enough to be unoffensive to picky eaters. It's recommended for poultry and beef, but feel free to mix it up with seafood and pork too.
