I marinated this for an hour, and in that time, the only flavor that came through was the heat from the chilies. I was a bit disappointed by that. I did have to use ground ginger because the ginger I had in the fridge had gone yucky, which could have been part of the problem.

This is a great blending of flavors. I marinated it for an hour but think next time I'll let it sit much longer to absorb more flavor. I used the steak in a stirfry with peppers, onions and broccoli. Thanks.

I loved the taste of this marinade! I used lemon juice as a substitute for lime. I think it would also be great with chicken.
