Author Notes

This marinade can be used for a variety of meats, but I created it one night to use for grilling tenderloin shish kabobs, but it would also be great for tender meats left as whole steaks. The marinade provides, a semi-sweet, savory flavor with hint of red chili spice from the hot sauce. With that said, if you are looking for an easy, home-prepared marinade that penetrates the meat very quickly, yet provides a unique flavor that would appeal to those with eclectic, discerning palates, this may be a good choice. —SJR

  • 1 pound Beef Tenderloin Steaks, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
