    mlao77's Note:

    This is a recipe I've used for several years now, taken from the Spice and Herb Bible. Amazing, is an understatement. The difficulty may lie in tracking down the ingredients, but it's worth all the effort. Enjoy! (note: preparation time does not include marinating time, i ground all the spices in a coffee mill/grinder)
