Umami Blast Marinade/Paste

Author Notes:

This paste gives anything it touches an immediate umami transformation. I use it in burgers and meatloaf (about 1T per pound). But my favorite thing to do with it is to score a skirt steak, rub it in paste, let it sit for an hour or so, and cook it on the grill with high heat!
