Does anyone here have one of the old Betty Crocker cookbooks? My sister is looking for a teriyaki marinade recipe that she remembers from that book and she thinks it may have been part of a recipe for kabobs. She remembers it had oil, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, wine or sherry, but no vinegar. And, also maybe dry mustard. If anyone has that old book and you see a recipe like that, would you mind passing it along?
I must have 40 cookbooks, but I don't have that one.
Thanks

I do have that cookbook..mine is 36 yrs old. I don't see it under Kabobs, but let me look a little more and I'll see what I can find.

ETA: Under the Kabobs I found Herb Marinade, Hot Basting Sauce, and Gaucho Sauce. None of them had teriyaki. Nothing under marinade and teriyaki. :?? Several sauces, but nothing with teriyaki.

If I find anything I'll post it.

Nothing like that in mine from '61. I have one "Shisk-Kabobs", no marinade.

Pretty sure if you put all the ingredients you listed above into a marinade it would turn out fantastically. I would probably even throw in some chili and/or sesame oil.

I've never cooked with a recipe (baking... sort of different story, I use ratios)... so I just go with what I know tastes good :o)


EDIT: I actually meant to start this with "I thought I had that cookbook around here from my mom, but I can't find it anywhere..."

Jan, Mike and Evan....thank you all for checking. My sister's memory is about as good as mine, which isn't saying much. I like to wing it, also, when it comes to marinades, so maybe if she just throws in what she remembers, it will turn out fine.
Don't you just love it when your better half invites friends over for supper and springs it on you at the last minute??

Checked mine as well and no marinades or kabobs. Did you check bettycrocker.com - there are a kabob and teriyaki recipes on their site, no idea how new or old they are.

We did check the website and most of the recipes there use the already bottled marinades, not one made from scratch. We've also checked Cooks.com, allrecipes.com, foodnetwork.com....etc. Guess she's just going to have to throw in what she remembers...which sounds fine to me. Thank you all so much for helping.

There is a recipe in the one I bought in 1967 for a Teriyaki sauce for Pork Teriyaki. 1/2 c soy sauce, 1/4 c honey, 1/2 tsp monosodium glutamate, 1 clove garlic minced, or 1/2 tsp ginger. The recipe says to marinate the pork in the sauce overnight, so it is used as a marinade and not as a sauce.

Is this it?

Kim...that just may be the one! I'll pass this along to sis. Thank you so much!

I had one many eons ago and lost it when I moved up here from Houston. It's been a major goal in my life to find that exact edition again because it had the best chocolate chip cookie recipe in the world, and the new recipe kind of... bites. The only suggestion is have it to look in used book stores if it's really important. Too bad we only have a couple in the area and they are always opening and closing.

How many eons? Mine was given to me as a bridal shower present in 1974. The inside cover actually says $5.95!!

Also... it appears in a previous post they may have found the recipe.

Ebay. If you know the approximate date and the exact name search that name and change the dates. That's how I found mine was from '61.

Mine is from 1972 and the teriyaki recipe goes like this:

1/4 c salad oil
1/4 c soy sauce
2 TB catsup
1 TB vinegar
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
2 cloves garlic, crushed

However, the kabob recipe in this addition does not use it. It marinates lamb in bottled french dressing (ugh).

I considered myself lucky to pick up this little edition used at a garage sale for a buck. It has awesome cookie and cake recipes thought I have used it rarely for cooking. Amazon does sell some out of print books and so does alibris.

I have a Better Homes Cookboook but it's from like four years ago. I generally make up my own merinades and it works out right. If I make teriyaki it's usually like this and I don't measure

Miren
Sake
Soy Sauce
Brown Sugar
Ginger(fresh is better)
Garlic
Onions(usually the dried kind)
Sesame Oil
Sesame Seeds.
Orange Juice

I never really used it for a merinade before but I'm pretty sure it would work well with the acids of the orange juice and booze is always a good meat tenderizer.

Mine has a recipe for Molasses Crinkles which I haven't seen in the newer ones. They are my son's favorite.

Thanks to everyone who looked this up for me. Even if these may not be the one she's thinking of, they all sound like they would make a mighty good marinade. I'm sure any of these would work just fine.
Thanks to you all again.

My old BHG (sure it wasn't that one and not BC? I get them mixed up sometimes) has one.
C soy sauce
C salad oil
2 T molasses
2 tsp grnd ginger
2 tsp dry mustard
6 cloves minced garlic

Ginger really gives things a zip, so along with the mustard, this would be a good one. You could use honey instead of molasses, or dark brown sugar.

I don't know if you'd be interested in buying an old edition of a Betty Crocker cook book. I'm new here on the computer, but I just now typed in Betty Crocker Cook Book on Google and found, (among others), the l950 edition for sale. I'll also ask around to see if any of my "old" friends might have a copy. Good Luck!
