      I usually marinade everything pretty much the same way, so hubby was happy to have a change of taste!! It didn't taste as much like citrus as I thought it would, but that turned out to be good. Next time I will try grilling it, there is nothing better than steak on a grill, and I bet that this marinade would taste good when basted on during grilling. I also enjoyed have the cayenne pepper mingled in with the citrus taste, it gave it a pleasant bite to it. Will definitely use this marinade again, next time will try it with chicken or pork, I bet that will taste just as good as the steak. Thanks for the new marinade!! Oh, I also put some onions in with the steak while it was cooking and found them to be very tasty with the steak!!

      This wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be. Really didn't taste the citrus.
