      This got a unanimous 5 star rating at lunch today! I did sub beef broth for the sherry since I didn't have any. The sauce really makes this special. A tangy zip, but not overpowering. We served the meat in tortillas with sour cream and the sauce from the recipe- *Delicious* DS has requested that I keep this recipe close by as he wants it again soon. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT4

      This was absolutely delicious!!! I made this last night for my dad's b-day, and it was a huge hit! I used a smaller cut of meat, since there were only 4 of us, but made the same amount of marinade & sauce. The sauce is out of this world. We served with warm tortillas, avacado, and pico de gallo (sp?) and everyone was going back for more of the sauce to put on top! I could go on and on, but I'll just say that this is a really great recipe. Thanks!
