Decoction Marinade

Use this great marinade for any barbequed meats. (Steam Whistle uses the decoction method of brewing where the mash -water and ground malted barley- is boiled, resulting in a creamier head and a deep golden colour.)

Simply blend the ingredients and use to marinade chicken, beef, pork or fish. Marinade for as little as 20 minutes or as long as overnight. This recipe could be an interesting addition to the mash...


  • 1 bottle of STEAM WHISTLE
  • 1/4 C olive oil (any oil will do, though... sesame or peanut oil would give it a nice flavour)
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 T powdered mustard
  • 1 t ground ginger
  • 3 T soy sauce
  • 1/4 t Tabasco sauce
  • 2 T white sugar (brown works beautifully as well)
  • 4 T orange marmalade
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
