This needs to marinate 24 hours so plan ahead. Marinating time is not included. This is really nice served over a bed of greens or with rice.

Excellent flavor. I made just as directed, but used skirt steak instead. Madef for ZWT5!
This was a nice, mild marinade that did not really pop on first taste but grew in flavor as the meal progressed. I made the marinade exactly as written and actually marinated the meat for 48 hours. Some salt on the sliced meat was needed to bring out the flavors of the marinade. Thanks for sharing this. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
Now this was a flavorful steak!! I used a top sirloin steak as it was on sale. I didn't use the jalapeno pepper as a family preference but otherwise made as written. I let the steak come to room temperature prior to grilling and then basted steak for first turnings on the grill. Thanks for sharing such a tasty marinade. Made for Stars Tag.
