1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar, lightly packed

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

3 Fresh Garlic Cloves, minced

1 teaspoon fresh ground Black Pepper


4 sprigs Fresh Parsley, chopped

In a large plastic sealable container, stir together oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and pepper.
