This is a good marinade sauce. It is one of more recent discoveries. It has some "bite" to it but if you use this recipe, may adjust. Of course this recipe can be used for a variety of meats .. beef, chicken,PORK(that was the original use), steak, venison... Historically it has several versions mainly : Spanish (South American, Mexican, Spain,Portuguese), & Asian (Filipi, Malaysian,). There is an island adobo too. Mine is the Asian version
