Some Japanese friends of mine who lived in Argentina marinated beef tongue in a similar sauce. I liked the marinade, but the tongue, not so much. I tried to replicate the marinade and now enjoy it with just about anything I can grill (except of course, the tongue). —edamame2003

I work in the entertainment business, and in my free time, I really enjoy growing my own vegetables, trolling my local farmers markets and trying to re-create yummy dishes I eat at my favorite restaurants. My son is a big influence on how and what I cook. He's my guinea pig and promises to try anything I make once. Luckily the recipes on food52 are bountiful and delicious.
