Fabulous!!, Member mneriksson

I followed this recipe exactly except for two things...I used olive oil because it's what I had and didn't use the cayenne because I was afraid it would be too spicy for my kids. I really loved this recipe because it was very simple, quick and used items I have on hand. Most importantly the meat was delicious-- juicy and flavorful. I even sauteed some sliced mushrooms in the marinade and they were great.
