Spring Hill Ranch's Southwestern Beef Marinade 1

Wiley P


This is a wonderful chicana-style marinade that adds great southwestern flavor to steaks, stew meat, brisket, flank steaks or beef ribs. Coat the meat with the marinade and refrigerate it for at least a couple hours - overnight is fine.

This recipe makes plenty to marinate 4 or 6 steaks, 3 or 4 pounds of stew-cut beef, or a good sized brisket.
