Mojo Grilling Marinade 7

Mojo Grilling Marinade

Deb Blagg

"This mojo marinade is delicious for use with meats and fish before grilling. It's a great marinade for grilled flank steak, whole pork loins, and on whole rotisserie chickens! Meat and chicken should be marinated overnight, fish only needs one hour."

I can't imagine how this recipe could be any better. Soak a gnarly slab of flank steak in it overnight, slap that bad boy on the grill, and pour yourself a Mojito, baby!

My husband used this marinade on steak and shroom kabobs we had the other night and it was excellent! He did omit the orange juice and it still tasted good! We will use this marinade again!

Good marinade. I think I must have left it on a little long because I found the steaks a bit tough. Maybe the citrus means you should only marinate for 3-4 hours.

Absolutley delicious! This recipe is perfect for truly traditional cuban or puertorrican style dish, or simply as a side dip for any meat. However, I suggest adding about 1/4 cup white vinega...

I've used this on chicken and pork, and both came out GREAT! Excellent marinade and gives meat some bold flavors. No need to change a thing, a definate keeper!!!
