My personal favorite marinade. It's wonderful on chicken and pork. It looks wonderful too, since it creates its own glaze. It can also be added to sherry and soy sauce to create teriyaki, to soy sauce and vinegar to create the flavors found in Korean food, and Hoisin sauce for grand Chinese barbecue. The blend contains the spice most often found in Chinese seasonings - sichuan pepper, star anise, and sweet spices.
