A delicious family favorite! Very easy to make and an unforgettable flavor. *In response to a recent review, when you boil the marinade, it is, in fact, safe to eat.

Please DON'T reserve a cup of marinade AFTER marinating!!!! THAT is very dangerous! You can get food poisoning! Reserve the cup of marinade, before marinating. If there isn't a cup of marinade to be saved before, then double the recipe.
