My daughter got this recipe when she lived in El Paso and uses it with flank steak. The marinade is also great on chicken. We like to serve it with rice.

Mmmm, this is delicious. I've used the recipe twice. The first time I marinaded the meat for several hours, the second time it was just for 2-3 hours. Longer is definitely better! I also tried it without the ginger and it was still delicious.

Very pleasant tasting marinade - my only piece of advice would be to marinate overnight - the flavor is much more pronounced than when you marinate for an hour (of course, I say that about every marinade...)

Me and my family absolutely loved this marinade. Even my son, who is a picky eater, cleaned his plate and wanted more.
