Coriander Teriyaki Marinade

Heavenly Marinade for Coriander Teriyaki (original marinade via epicurious.com)
* 1 teaspoon coriander seeds, coarsely ground in a spice grinder
* 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
* 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
* 2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
* 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
* 1 pound flank steak, steak tips, chicken, or your favorite meat

1. Press coriander onto both sides of meat and put on a large plate.
2. Stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and oil and pour over meat, turning meat to coat. Marinate, turning occasionally, 10 minutes.
3. Cook it up! (Grill it, pan fry it, etc.) Great over wild rice or brown rice.

This works well with steak (pretty much any type- I did it with steak tips and oh it is good) or chicken (also delicious!). Super delish! I didn't have any coriander seeds when I first made this dish, so I left that out but increased the amount of fresh cilantro by doubling it, and it was still amazing (although slightly different in flavor). I also love garlic and tend to put in at least 2-3 good sized cloves. I'm not a fish eater but, I bet this would be great on fish as well.

Another thing that is lovely to do with this is to make a pizza with chicken cooked in the marinade. Cook up the chicken in the marinade, or do it the next day with leftovers (which is what I usually do.) Get either pizza dough or some sort of pizza bread. Spread some of the sauce of the marinade and the bits of fond/carmelized bits from the pan (which I try to save when cleaning the pan of leftovers) on the bread or dough. Add some pizza sauce, only enough to lightly coat the dough or bread (too much and the dough will be too soggy when cooked). Top with shreaded mozzarella and bite sized pieces of chicken cooked in the marinade. Add olives, mushrooms or veggie of your choice (or none at all). Bake at 425F for about 15 minutes or until the crust is brown and the cheese is melted.

I've tried this with whole wheat pizza dough and it's rather good too.
