Standard Chinese Marinade

Add ~2 rounds soy sauce, sprinkle sugar, dash of white pepper, a little sesame oil. Mix. Add ~2 tsp corn starch. Mix. Add a little oil. Mix.


  • Can use dark soy sauce (‘lo chau’) instead of salt if want more colour (e.g. for meatloaf – yuk bang)
  • The oil at the end is so that the meat doesn’t stick together because of the corn starch
