This is from another thread but I wanted to know where to find it. It's the only place I have it written down!


1/2C Red Wine Vinegar

1/2 cup Ponzu (can also use Soy or Teriyaki)

6 oz pineapple juice (that is the size of the small cans at the grocery store)

1-large chipotle pepper (in can in adobo sauce)- could add another one for my tatse but start with 1 if you don't like spicy

1 Tablespoon Achiote Paste

3 cloves Garlic

Little Salt and Pepper

I blended up for 1 minute in my blender to get everything good and emulsified.

I rub my steak (or chicken or pork) with EVOO, Salt, Pepper, and Achiote Paste. I let it sit for a while until it's good and red (30 minutes or so) then I pour the marinade over and let sit in fridge overnight or at least 4 hours.

Achiote paste can be found in the Mexican section of many mainstream stores and in all Mexican food stores.
