    I marinated a london broil for 24 hours for a party. I grilled it and served it was gone before I knew it and everyone was asking for more! Delicious!  -  27 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a seriously wonderful butt kicking BBQ sauce. The only criticism I have of the recipe is the instruction to "Discard any remaining sauce." Do Not Do That!!! Instead after marinating the meat or fish, boil the sauce you used to marinade and it will reduce nicely to a spicy kind of sticky BBQ sauce which freezes just fine. BTW the recipe makes enough for at least 2 meals if you're cooking for 2 so split it in half and freeze the rest. Works great on pork tenderloins and probably anything else you can think of. The London Broil idea was fantastic! We loved it!!!  -  22 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I found this recipe two years ago and have used it more than 10 times for chicken because my family loved it and when I'm BBQing chicken my dad always ask me if I used 'the Arawak marinade.' Arawak BBQ sauce is also very forgiving marinade~ once this summer I added diet 7-up soda because nobody would drink it and there was only 1 cup left. The chicken still tasted good! The combination of spices and other ingredients gave chicken slightly sweet, light tang, mouth-watering taste with marvelous aroma! The aroma is almost thearptic. *Breath in, Breath out*  -  18 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
