Here in the land of microbrews (the beautiful Pacific NW), this marinade goes over really well. :) It is a really versatile recipe, and you can easily add or subtract amounts of the ingredients to suit your tastes - experiment and enjoy!
- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice, to taste
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground oregano
- 1 pinch dark brown sugar, to taste
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 bottle your favorite beer
- 2 dashes Tabasco sauce, to taste
- Combine all ingredients in food processor and whir until it's well mixed (or you can just mix all the ingredients together - it's up to you).
- Marinate fajita strips for at least 30 minutes, preferably overnight (I usually do this in a Ziplock bag).
- This is a really versatile recipe, and you can easily add or subtract amounts of the ingredients to suit your tastes - experiment and enjoy! We've used this marinade on chicken, beef, and buffalo.
- Note: make sure to use beer in this recipe that you like, otherwise you might end up with a marinade you don't like the taste of. :)
This marinade had a nice flavor. I used 1 TBS brown sugar. I think that the beer that I used had a strong flavor because the beer taste was very dominant in the chicken. I don't know for sure because I don't drink beer. Next time I will try to find a lighter flavored beer for this marinade.
A very good marinade. I used a very small onion, bottled minced garlic, splenda instead of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of tabasco, and 1 bottle of michelob ultra (the lower cal/low carb beer)! I grilled mine after about 8 hours marinating. My husband was upset that I didn't make a bigger batch! Thank you for this recipe.
