This marinade can be used on all sorts of meats (absolutely the BEST for steaks!) and even seafood. It is my favorite and soooooo easy and tasty!

I'm giving this a 4 star only because I've had my own version of this for a long time and I think it's better. Try using equal amounts of soy sauce olive oil and LIME JUICE instead of the water. This is an outstanding marinade for ANY type of meat...also use the LIGHT SOY SAUCE for a less salty taste and don't marinade for more than a couple hours...ENJOY the raves!! Read More

Maybe I did something wrong with this recipe. I used it with top round steaks and marinated for about 8 hours. The steaks were tender but so salty we could barely eat them. I won't try this one again. Read More

I made this twice. First with water and then with lime juice. It was better with the lime juice. I also took the advice of using equal parts of olive oil and soy sauce. Thanks! Read More

All I can say is that this is such an easy thing to do and it is great. It truly does make the meat or seafood very moist and has great flavor. Thank you for posting. Read More

Excellent steak marinade. I really like this the steaks were tender and juicy. Plus they had a good flavor without being too salty. They were every bit as flavorful as what you get at a restuarant. The best part is I have these ingredients on hand at all times. The only change I made was to use regular oil rather than olive oil. Read More

Definately easy and tasty! Used all lime juice as suggested in earlier reviews. Will be a good change of pace from our normal marinade (Puerto Rican Garlic Marinade from this site). Thanks! Read More

I thought this was OK but needed something. I will try again and omit the water altogether use a little less soy sauce add some sherry and liquid smoke. Read More

very nice and simple. it was also quite good when I added a bit of Worcestershire sauce or ketjap manis (a sweet dark Indonesian version of soy sauce). I used it on pork and then broiled it - it was very well flavored. Read More
