    About this recipe: This takes a while to marinate, but with beef this toothsome it is well worth it. Serve hot with flour tortillas, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and soured cream. This also works well with pork.

    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 750ml (1 1/4 pints) water

    This was very good, although I was expecting it to taste more authentic, tasted just like a roast to me. It was very good in a burrito with beans etc, this helped a lot with the taste better than on its own. - 15 Sep 2008

    Used different ingredients. I tried it with a pork roast and marinated it for about 12-13 hours. I also added onions and green chillis to it. It wasn't spicy to my husband or me, but we really enjoyed it. - 15 Sep 2008
