- 10 carrots, ends trimmed to make hot dog-size shape
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup rice vinegar
- ¼ cup sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ground black pepper to taste
Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add carrots, cover, and steam until tender yet still have a snap, about 15 minutes. Run cold water over carrots to stop the cooking process. Transfer carrots to a storage container.
Whisk soy sauce, water, vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and black pepper together in a bowl; pour over carrots. Cover container and refrigerate, at least 3 hours. The longer they marinate, the more intense to flavor.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
Remove carrots from marinade and place on the grill; cook until desired doneness is reached, 5 to 10 minutes.
