This zesty marinade is fit for any barbeque. It leaves meat tender and extra juicy with a little kick after each bite. Whiskey and habanero sauce create a little spark that's hard to extinguish. For a little sweetness, add 2 tablespoons molasses to the mixture.

this marinade is excellent. However the habanero really blew us away. We used the recommended amount of habanero sauce and let the chicken marinade for 36 hours or so. WHen we cooked the chicken the marinade was delicious but the chicken became barely edible in the end since our mouths were on fire. When we left the habanero out of the marinade recipe the chicken was nice and tender flavorful and FAR less spicy. So this marinade is quite good but i recommend a limited amount of habanero.

Awesome!!! I used this with a flat iron steak; let it marinate in the fridge for about 24 hours and WOW!!! What fantastic flavor! I wish I could give this one 6 stars! The combination of ingredients sounded odd to me... all that curry with beer and bourbon and hot sauce and red pepper flakes... I thought "What a strange brew this is gonna be!" But just follow this one to the letter and you cannot go wrong. Thanks for submitting such a GREAT recipe! I'll be trying it with chicken pork and shrimp in the days to come. I'll bet it's good with anything! Read More

Fantastic! If my husband could give this six stars he would. We marinated pork ribs overnight and barbequed them - they were delicious and tender!! We included all of the ingredients plus the 2 tablespoons molasses for just a little sweetness as suggested. Can't wait to try it on other cuts of meat! Read More

Just as advertised! This is a zesty marinade with a kick! I wish I had used the molasses. This has a southwest taste to it. My son said this is a 4.5 hubby says a 4. I made to recipe except for using only 1 tsp of curry powder. If you are looking for a regular sweet tasting sauce/marinade then this one is not for you. This would be great with spanish rice corn etc. Thanks for the post Block! Read More

This was really good. I put the marinade in the crock pot with a beef roast. My entire family loved it. I left out the red peppers because of the kids. I used just red hot sauce instead of habenero again for the kids. Next time I will half the recipe because it made a ton of marinade. Definately a keeper. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly. We also did flat iron steaks and they were terrific. The only thing I will do differently is halve or quarter the recipe - this makes a huge amount of marinade! Read More
