Garlic Ginger Paleo Marinade

This simple Garlic Ginger Paleo Marinade is packed with flavor and will quickly become a go-to favorite in your recipe repertoire. Each week I marinate several cuts of meat in this marinade overnight, and then cook them up on the grill or the stove top the next day. I also love using this marinade as a stir-fry sauce, and it tastes great when sauteed up with veggies as well!

  • 1 cup(s) coconut aminos
  • 1 cup(s) wine, white
  • 1 tablespoon(s) sesame oil, toasted
  • 2 tablespoon(s) ginger, fresh sliced, about 2 inches for 4 servings
  • 2 medium garlic clove(s) peeled and sliced


  1. Combine all ingredients into a covered shallow dish (non-metal) or re-sealable plastic bag.
  2. Place meat of choice in marinade. Make sure that the marinade surrounds most of the meat. If it is too large, slice the meat into smaller sections first.
  3. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 24 hours, turning the meat (or "squishing" the bag) several times to make sure the marinade covers the meat completely.
  4. The meat is now ready to cook. Remove from the marinade and salt lightly before grilling, pan frying, or baking.
  5. Discard leftover marinade, or remove ginger and garlic slices and bring it to a boil (uncovered) for 5 to 10 minutes to reduce into a thicker sauce for drizzling over cooked meat.
