Recipe by  

"This is a really quick to prepare steak, with a little bit of kick. Though prep time is fast it is better enjoyed when marinated for at least 8 hours. Buen Provecho!"

This marinade was great. I put it and the steak in a plastic bag instead of on a plate to ensure the whole surface of the steak was covered, rotating the bag over the course of 8hrs. My husband LOVED the flavor.

I only marinated this for about 3 1/2 hours and the flavor was very over powering. It was spicy but not very flavorful. If I made this again I would maybe add some soy sauce to balance out the spicy flavor.

I halved the amount of cayenne pepper, and it was still a bit too spicy for my wimpy taste buds. The flavor, however, was fantastic - I marinated the steak for about 10 hours, and it was perfect. This would work great with chicken too, maybe as a kabob marinade. Thanks!

Very spicy. VERY spicy and I halved the cayenne. I also added in cilantro to try to get more flavor and it just wasn't very flavorful. Just very spicy. I marinated for the full 8 hours too.

Marinade gives the steak a very interesting and good taste.

Pretty good. Mine too was a touch hot too for the liking and not in a complex way. First time to use London Broil though so perhaps I just need to learn this meat better. I would suggest maybe cutting back on the cayenne - as others have - and maybe adding a touch of lime or maybe orange to the marinade.

Good marinade - I didn't use the cayenne pepper. I added in onion powder and hot chili powder. Definitely marinate overnight.

This was o.k. but nothing special.
