I used this marinade on pork chops. I was in a hurry, so they marinated only one hour. I could barely taste the marinade, so next time I'll definitely marinate it longer. Thanks for the recipe!

I put a tender piece of meat [sirlon] in this marinade overnight & found it really toughened the meat - the texture changed completely. Although the marinade was tasty, I would not make again.

We marinated for 24 hours and the steak turned out very flavorful.

Used this on T-Bones. Omitted the lemon juice and used a blend of spices for the oregano. Only marinated for about 1.5 hours but was still good. Thanks for the post.

Did not make the meat tender - meat was in the marinade 6 hrs. -

I enjoyed this marinade and found it flavorful and easy. I substituted an herbal blend for the oregano, and that added even more flavor.

I marinaded some beef tips for about an hour and a half and the meat was lousy - tough - and the marinade was not very good at all. I will never use it again
