"This is the best marinade I have ever tasted. It is my mother-in-law's recipe. We love it. Marinate your meat at least four hours. This recipe makes enough for two steaks." — Bella

fresh lime juice
A hit at my house. We had pre-sliced the beef, and it was extremely flavorful with this marinade. It would be good with chicken as well. Everyone assembles their own fajita, as our family has wildly differing tastes. We serve with traditional fajita vegetables and toppings, plus fresh tomato and shredded lettuce. We have both hot and mild salsa. Everyone is happy, and all request this marinade again!
Not what I was looking for. Had a slightly sour taste to it.
Loved it - had pineapple juice left over from the 4th libations - great way to use it!! Had this with chicken & it was really tasty!
Marinated turkey tenderloins in this for 24 hours and grilled....delicious! I only used 1/2c. pineapple juice, 1/4c. soy and added 1/4c. olive oil with the lime juice, cumin and fresh garlic. Very good...will make again. Thanks!
Simple and good. I used lemon juice instead of lime.
This marinade needs to marinate for at least 2 days to really get some flavor. I doubled the recipe and added fajita veggies to it. It was pretty good. Next time I will marinate for 3 days.
I just made this for a family get together and it was very tasty! I poured the juice right from the bowl of a pineapple I cut up yesterday and only got 1/2 cup out of it so I used some extra lime juice and it was still delicious. Next time I will defintely marinate for the full four hours (only did for one today as I was running late). Oh and I also added 1 tsp of coriander just for fun. Thanks for the idea!
This was very good, but not what I was expecting. I'll use it again, but I'm not sure if I'll use it as a fajita marinade again.
