  1. Directions:.
  2. Mix all marinate ingredients together, in a non-metal container, stir to mix well.
  3. Using the same non-metal container (I use a plastic 5-Quart Ice Cream bucket) add the meat to the marinating mixture and stir well to insure that all of the meat is coated with the marinating mixture.
  4. Refrigerate over night, stirring occasionally to enhance the marinating. After Marinating, remove the meat, drain & pat dry with paper towels, discard the marinate.
