A Tasty Marinade

This started out as something that I watched on a cooking show and turned into something a bit different.

4 limes
1 clove garlic (fresh!)
2 cups cilantro (fresh leaves only)
2 tablespoons New Mexican red chile pepper

squeeze the limes. I used a citrus juicer my wife bought for her fresh juice in the morning. Peel the garlic. Dump garlic, lime juice, and cilantro into a blender. Let whirl!! It should be a very liquid mix.

Place meat in the cilantro-garlic-lime juice. Turn regularly. I used a pork shoulder roast, but made the mistake of picking a meat a tad too fatty.

Just prior to grilling, broiling, whatever, get the meat very wet with the marinade . First sprinkle salt all over the meat. Then sprinkle chile pepper all over the meat so it looks like its red EVERYWHERE.

Two ways to cook: BBQ or broil. Your choice.

Quite yummy.
