Mmmm, sounds delicious.

If I were doing this cut, I would leave it at least overnight, maybe even a day and a half. The longer it marinates, the more the flavour can penetrate and the salt (if using) can do it's thing to help tenderize the meat.

That said however, you could probably do it for as short as 4 hours.

Please let us know how it turns out. Sounds yummy.
