This sweet and tangy marinade is perfect for braai day! Marinate your chicken kebabs, pork chops or follow the variation below and use as a sauce on the side with delicious homemade hamburgers. We love combining this marinade with the AMC Dome & Seal ensuring our braai meat absorbs all the flavour.
