This was great. I made it tonight. I was a bit scared it wouldn't turn out as when I tasted the mixture it was very spicy and the soy sauce was very overpowering. But it turned out great. I used 1/2 tsp of cayenne, mine says it's extra hot so I am really glad I didn't put the whole tsp in as it would have been too spicy. I used red spanish onions as that's all I had. I only let the meat sit with the sauce for 10-15 minutes as I found the recipe today. So next time I will definitely let it set overnight! Thanks for sharing!
