Three Pepper Marinade

(Makes enough marinade for about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds chicken, steak tips, or shrimp.)


3/8 cup Three Pepper Ketchup (Original, Spicy, or More Spicy)
1/4 cup your favorite Italian salad dressing or marinade
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke


    1. Whisk together all marinade ingredients.
    2. Pat meat dry with paper towels. Cut into thin 1 1/2" - 2" wide strips or 1 1/2" chunks.
    3. Place meat in a container with a lid or a zip lock bag. Pour marinade over the meat, and mix well or shake, ensuring that the meat is well covered with the marinade.
    4. Refrigerate 2 to 24 hours, mixing or turning occasionally. (Or place in freezer to thaw and grill at a later time.)
    5. Heat grill until hot. Clean and oil cooking grate.
    6. Arrange beef, chicken, or shrimp on skewers, if you like and place on grill.
    7. Cook chicken until charred and registers 165°F. Cook beef until charred and registers 140 to 145°F (for medium).  Cook shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.
    8. Transfer meat to platter, tent loosely with foil, and rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve.
