Mexican Marinade

This marinade can be used on practically any meat or Mexican-style dish. You'll get a great lime and cilantro flavor without overpowering the flavor of the meat.

1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients and mix well. This marinade works best if it is made a day in advance so the flavors can blend. Marinate beef, lamb and pork for about 6 hours, poultry for 4 hours and fish for 1 hour.
