turning a new leaf

Autumn is a beautiful time of year. The sun casts a warm glow, the leaves turn colour, and the weather becomes more comfortable.  You can feel the end of summer warmth greet the chill of the autumn air.
Many people think summer is the only BBQ season, but there is nothing more comforting than eating something cooked over the fire, something to take the chill out of the autumn air.  The smoky scent fills the air like a warm blanket, while your hands are warmed by hot chocolate.

or the longest time, my husband would only BBQ meat with only a little seasoning.  He's a BBQ purist.  However,  this is a tasty recipe, which doesn't require overnight marinating.  I think I've changed his mind.

Quick Marinade

This also works well with all kinds of meats...pork, chicken, and even fish.


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 small sliced red onion
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 4 pieces of meat, approx. 8oz each.

  • Mix the marinade. 
  • Place your meat in a large glass pyrex baking pan.
  • Stir in the marinade, turning to coat.
  • Cover and let sit in then fridge for approx. 30 minutes (or at least 15 minutes).  Do not marinade more than 30 minutes, as the salt from the soy sauce makes this recipe quite salty.
Grill and enjoy the first day of Autumn.
