READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Enduring Gastronomy

Tangy, mildly spicy and tender. Eating Well (June/July 2005). Makes good tacos with Mexican Coleslaw or Mango-Radish Salsa.

Made for Healthy Choices 2008 ABC (May) Tag Game. This was okay, but nothing spectacular. I sauted the meat with onions and peppers and we had fajitas out of it.
