All-Purpose Marinade

This recipe was passed along to me by a friend’s mom, Betty.  She uses this for chicken, shrimp, and beef—even a beef roast!  It would be especially easy to pour this marinade over a roast in the slow cooker.  Yum!  I try to get two or three uses out of one batch of marinade.  For instance, I might divide it between a roast, a couple of steaks, and a chicken in the freezer bags to pull out when I’m ready.  This is another one that is GREAT on the grill!

¾ c. soy sauce
½ c. oil
½ c. cider vinegar
1/3 c. lemon juice
¼ c. Worcestershire sauce
2 T. ground mustard (or 2 T. yellow mustard)
2 T. dry parsley (or thyme, or omit)
1 ½ t. pepper
2 cloves garlic  (I usually use four.  I can’t stop myself.)
