Mick, Great minds think alike!! I have some steak marinating right now to cook tonight. My marinade is quite similar. I used pineapple juice, soy sauce, chopped onion, garlic, black pepper, and ginger.

However, I wasn't even thinking about the dipping sauce...until now.

I've gotten really bad about not taking pictures for my blog. I hope I can remember tonight. Both Saturday and Sunday night I grilled some really good meals. Saturday I did grilled pizza and Sunday I did beer-in-the-butt chicken, corn-on-the-cob, and stuffed jalapenos.
