I received this recipe when we moved to Oklahoma. A going-away party was held for us, and the guests were asked to bring their favorite recipe as a remembrance. The special friend who brought this one has since died, and every time I make it, a flood of wonderful memories fills my heart.
It doesn't take a seasoned cook to turn out this scrumptious entree. Served with your favorite salad, it makes a wonderful summer supper. Try it with limeade or orange juice in place of lemonade. My family raves about every refreshing version.
Pineapple juice, soy sauce and cider vinegar give these juicy steaks their tangy taste. We found that the sweet and tropical marinade is also good on pork.

“I like my food bursting with flavor, so I love to experiment with all different ethnic recipes. Sweet, tangy barbecue sauce goes well with the heat of the jerk-seasoned marinade in this recipe. Ease of prep plus an appealing presentation make it great for entertaining. And friends always come back for seconds!” —Karen Cambiotti, Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania
This recipe has been a well-guarded secret in my family for generations but I have decided to share it because it is so yummy. It is sure to be a hit in your family as well.—Inge Perreault, Oxford, New Jersey
