I actually just made this over the weekend and it is very good. I love chevys and got the recipe from their cookbook. The only thing I will do different next time is add in more mexican seasonings. The flavor is awesome but has more asian flavor than mexican.

Very nice marinade, so perfect for a late Sunday dinner after feeding the cows and closing the door behind us. Stoked the fire and this light dinner was before us. I followed this exactly, but had some sliced onion & green pepper so I put them in the old iron skillet to soften, and the steak, cut in strips cooked until heated through~and the rest is history. Very yummy~Made for *I Recommend* Tag Game Fall 2008

Very good!! I made as directed, the only thing we did differently was grill it a bit longer, since we like our meat a little more on the medium well side. Very tender and tasty. A great recipe - thanks for posting!
