"This was just ok - wont make again. Lime was too much and did not yield an exceptional flavor."

"I really don't want to be a downer, but this recipe didn't work out for us. I ended up with tasty pieces of beef, plain rice, and a bowl of lime juice with fresh garlic floating in it. Pouring the juice mixture over it all was too much. Dipping each beef piece in the juice was ok, but still very strong and then there was still the plain rice that needed something ..."

"This was easy and yummy! I would suggest doubling the lime juice, sugar and garlic mixture and adding half of it to the rice. Also I threw in some red cayenne pepper to jazz it up. Super summer dinner!"
