This marinade makes the toughest cuts of meat tender. I'm frequently asked for the recipe. It's also good with venison and elk meat.

"We tripled this recipe because we had about a 3 pound roast. It was a hit! It grilled up beautifully and the taste was the perfect balance of the ingredients. It has already been asked for again!"
