- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons molasses
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 teaspoons cumin

- Combine cumin, chili powder and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Cook over high heat for about 40 seconds.
- Carefully add olive oil, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, molasses, oregano and garlic. Mix well.
- Place meat in a shallow baking dish and pour mixture over it. Make sure it is well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
