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!

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.


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 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!
