Adobo Marinade and Applications

I use this stuff for everything from skirt or flank steak, to chicken, to pulled pork in the crock pot.

1-2 cups orange juice (depending upon size of meat)
Juice and zest of one lime
1 T minced garlic (I cheat and use the jar)
1 T dried oregano
1 T cumin
salt and pepper

Marinate for 15-20 minutes or longer. Easy and super flavorful.

For steak:
Marinate and grill till medium rare. Serve with white onion and cilantro or chimichurri sauce

For chicken:
Marinate and grill. Cut up and fold into yellow rice and cilantro

For pulled pork:
Marinate and sear on all sides. Cook up 3-4 small onions till clear. Add meat and onions to crock pot with 1 more T garlic, oregano and cumin. Cover in beef or chicken broth. Cook still falls apart. Shred and add in (you guessed it) cilantro. Serve with slaw mix on burger buns.
