This marinade can be used on practically any meat or Mexican-style dish. You'll get a great lime and cilantro flavor without overpowering the flavor of the meat.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons cumin
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients and mix well. This marinade works best if it is made a day in advance so the flavors can blend. Marinate beef, lamb and pork for about 6 hours, poultry for 4 hours and fish for 1 hour.

""Mexican"" Marinade, Member rgibfam5

I made this marinade and used is on boneless chicken thighs and thin sliced sirloin steaks. Everyone loved it! I soaked both the chicken and steak all day and we ate it without any other seasoning. And the leftovers were even better the next day and even a few days later! My husband was quite impressed since I don't ususally do the grilling in our house, but I volunteered since it was Father's Day. :)
