These were great! I made these with some veal chops I got on sale and they came out great. I made the marinade before lunch - so they probally marinated for over 4 hours in the refrigerator and were very tender - you could almost cut them with a fork and very tasty! Will also be trying the marinade on chicken - should be wonderful! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
