Vietnamese Lemongrass & Garlic Marinade

Love the idea of Marion Grasby’s Vietnamese Lemongrass and Garlic Marinade but can’t buy it where you live? This is the real-deal, make-it-yourself recipe. Yep, we’re sharing the homemade version of our bottled marinade so you can enjoy the Asian flavours wherever you are.

PREP TIME
5 minutes

SERVES

Ingredients

3-4 stalks of lemongrass, trimmed, outer layers removed

2 cloves of garlic

2 slices of ginger, peeled

3 tbsp tamarind paste

1 red chilli, deseeded

2 tbsp sugar

3 tbsp fish sauce

1 tsp white vinegar

1 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tsp salt

1 cup water

1 tsp vegetable oil

2 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)

Steps
  • Step 1

    Roughly chop the lemongrass, garlic and ginger, and transfer to a blender along with remaining ingredients.

  • Step 2

    Blend to a smooth consistency.

  • Step 3

    Transfer to a saucepan and place over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for several minutes until the sauce thickens and is looking lovely and glossy.
