It's nice to have a few go-to recipes that you know will work every time. This marinade is sweet, sticky and delicious. It goes with nearly any kind of meat you can think of I've used it with lamb chops, pork steaks, chicken thighs, and beef cubes for kebabs.

If you have the time, allow the meat to marinate for an hour before cooking, but this is not essential. When this is cooking in the oven it gives off the most amazing aroma.


0.3 cup tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey


Preheat the oven to 190C

Place all of the sauce ingredients in a large casserole dish. Add the meat and make sure it is well and truly coated in the sauce. Allow to stand for an hour in the fridge if you have time.

Place in the oven, turning half way through. Cook for 30 minutes or until the meat is cooked to your liking.

Yummmm. My favourite meat for this recipe is lamb cutlets - it's too bad they are often so expensive :)
