Good stuff. Tasted yummy!
EXCLENTE! on slow pork or grilled chicken
We use this recipe often. It is very good on flat iron steak. We have found that if we use fresh lemon and lime juice instead of the bottled we did not get good results--the meat turned grey. This does not happen with the bottled juice. We have also used this as a dipping sauce for cuban sandwiches. Yum! Icuban also has a pineapple avacado salad that will knock your socks off.
My review is of my altered version of this recipe. I used only one head of garlic and I did the orange/lime/lemon juice combo to create sour orange. I have a lot of Cuban in-laws and am familiar with the Cuban food in Miami. I liked the end result but my husband summed it up when he said the house smelled better than the chicken tasted. The sour orange was a little over-powering and next time I will reduce the lemon and lime juices as well as the garlic. I will make this again and am looking for a good black bean recipe to go with it. Thanks.
good...but the oregano needs to be subsituted for Cumin. Being a Latina, we don't use oregano for traditional foods.
Good stuff! I didn't use all the garlic called for. One large bulb was fine (its all I had). I didn't used the oil. I stopped at step 4 and used this to marinate chicken which I then grilled. I think next time I will try roasting it in the oven as the charcoal seemed to have overpowered the marinade a little. It could also be that I didn't marinate it long enough. It marinaded for about 5 or 6 hours. I still could tasted it and it was wonderfull but I think it could be better. Oops, I never seem to read directions well enough lol. I just looked back over the recipe and I did not realize that the onion and oregano wasn't added until step 5. Oh well, no regrets here and I will make it the same next time as I did this time. I served this with a wonderful tossed salad of lettuce, avocado, pineapple, onion, tomato, and cucumbers with cider vin, olive oil, garlic and oregano dressing. All in all this was a great meal and I will be using this marinade alot. Thanks for another winner.
