Soy Vay Sauces and Marinades Review and Recipes

Planning a dinner party or maybe you want to surprise your family with an awesome, homemade meal? Enter Soy Vay, the all-natural sauces and marinades.

The story of Soy Vay and how it came to be is a cute one.  Soy Vay began when a Jewish boy and a Chinese girl met and began talking about a common interest:  cooking.  They soon realized that by combining the best of their families’ cooking secrets, they could create new and unique tastes.  The result – Soy Vay.  Their first product was the Hoisin Garlic Asian Glaze followed by Veri Veri Teriyaki.  Today their catalogue of products includes: Soy Vay Island Teriyaki, Wasabi Teriyaki and Toasted Sesame Dressing and Marinade.

Soy Vay sauces and marinades are fantastic.  Super easy to use, tasty and the beauty of these sauces – you can marinate right before cooking, during cooking or overnight.  With an index recipe right on their website, you have a ton of options just a click away.

On New Year’s Eve I wanted some finger foods for my family to munch on throughout the night.  One of the snacks I made was the Soy Vay Snack Mix.

SOY VAY SNACK MIX

5 cups rice cereal squares
2 cups plain goldfish crackers
2 cups sesame sticks
1/3 cup Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki or Soy Vay Island Teriyaki
1 cup peanuts
1/2 cup butter or margarine melted

Combine cereal, crackers, sesame sticks, and peanuts in a large bowl. Combine butter and Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki or Soy Vay Island Teriyaki; stir to combine and pour over snack mixture. Toss well to coat and transfer to two cookie sheets. Bake at 250Ì F for 30 to 35 minutes, stirring frequently. Transfer to paper towels to cool. Makes 10 cups.

 

Believe it or not, my family ate the Snack Mix before I remembered to snap a picture of it – yikes!

After seeing how easy it was to make the Snack Mix I decided to give another one of their recipes a try.  I made the Saucy Asian Meatballs.

 

SAUCY ASIAN MEATBALLS

1 lb. lean ground beef
2 green onions, chopped
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki or Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic Asian Glaze and Marinade
1/4 cup each: Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic Asian Glaze and Marinade, pineapple juice, & tomato juice
2 tablespoons dry sherry or apple juice
1/8 teaspoon each: garlic powder & powdered ginger

In a medium bowl combine ground beef, onions, egg, bread crumbs, and 2 tablespoons Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki or Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic Asian Glaze and Marinade. Mix well and form into balls. Cook in large skillet until browned on all sides and cooked through. Drain excess fat and set aside. Combine remaining ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer 5 minutes then pour over hot meatballs. Stir well. Serve over white rice. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

 

This time I remembered to snap a picture.  They tasted as good as they looked. Even my sometimes picky 4-year old gobbled them up and even asked for “leftovers” the next day.

Since the sauces and marinades were such a big hit I decided to give an original recipe a try – Spicy Chicken Teriyaki Soup.

Wow!

Even I was blown away by how good it came out.  The Soy Vay sauces and marinades are a great ingredient to work with; they are made with all natural ingredients and are free of stabilizers, gums or artificial ingredients.  So tasty!

Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think.  I even snapped a couple of pictures of the recipe steps.
