Baja Citrus Marinade

The beer based citrus marinade works well with Beef, Pork and Lamb.

2 - 12 oz. Mexican Beers
1/3 cp fresh Orange Juice
1 tsp grated Orange Zest
2 tbls Red Wine Vinegar
2 tbls Soy Sauce
1/4 cp Canola Oil
1/2 cp Minced Onion
2 tbls Minced Garlic
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a blender, pureeing until onions and garlic are liquified. Reserve one cup for basting, and use remainder as a marinade for beef, pork or lamb. Use a shoulder or leg cut. Marinate meat for at least two hours for best flavor.

Darlene's Tips;
If you like it sweet add 1/2 cup brown sugar or honey.

To make it spicy add 2 chopped chipotle peppers OR 2 chopped red chili peppers.
