  • The longer the meat marinates, the more tender the meat and more robust the flavor.

Very nice marinade for fajitas. I made this with beef and marinated for 6 hours or so. I would probably double the cumin next time I made it, but otherwise I'd leave it as is. I think this would have been even better with chicken.

I omitted the beef broth as we are on a special diet and it still turned out fabulous. My family raved and raved about this marinade.

This is delicious! It makes the flank steak I used so tender and flavorful after only an hour or two of marinating. I omitted the vinegar, onion powder, and beef bouillon. And all the spices I just eyeballed it - didn't measure. One whole good sized lime provided the perfect amount of juice. Its so good, definitely 5 stars.

This is amazing!! I was having a big group of people so I made this the night before and marinated chicken and beef. The only thing I did different was for one of them I used lemon juice instead of lime (ran out of lime juice) and with the chicken I added fresh cilantro (coriander). With the cilantro it just made it that much better!!! My go to marinade for fajitas for now on for sure!!

I used this on chicken and it was great! I had this in the marinade for about 5 hrs. and will shoot for longer next time and maybe add a touch of salt as well. Thanks Kitkat :)

Love the flavor and tenderness. Used it on beef meat and it worked out pretty good (marinated for eight hours). Delicious
