Asian Sauce Recipe
Mix together the honey, molasses, soy sauce and sesame oil. Add the grated garlic and ginger then pour in the sesame seeds.
Pour marinade over your meat and cover completely. For best flavor let it marinate at least 4 hours, longer is better. Cook meat as usual.
Sesame Oil?If you don't have Sesame oil on hand it's worth buying. If it's a bit pricy for your budget mix it with Peanut oil since sesame oil has such strong flavor. Mix 1 or 2 tablespoons of Sesame oil to one cup Peanut oil.
How To Freeze Asian MarinadePlace meat into a freezer bag and pour in enough Asian sesame sauce to coat the meat. Smoosh it around so that all the meat has been covered then remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal.

Freeze now, the beauty of 'dump' freezer recipes is that they get better as they thaw because as the meat is thawing it's also marinating.
How to ThawIdeally you don't want to quickly thaw this sort of recipe so the meat it's a chance to marinade, so leave it in the fridge at least overnight. Try to pull it out at dinnertime or before bed the day before you want to use it.
Cook according to the type and cut of meat on the grill, stovetop, in the oven or crock pot.
