“If you are using this as a tenderizer/marinade then mix in 3 teaspoons powdered meat tenderizer, I use Club House brand but any kind will do. Plan ahead this must be refrigerated for a minimum of 24 hours before using. If you prefer a sweeter sauce then increase brown sugar to taste, if desired you may adjust all ingredients to suit taste. Use 1 tablespoon seasoned salt for this (I use Lawry's seasoned salt) and white salt to season at the end of cooking if necessary. This is great on chicken and ribs!”
