Let us know what you decided, and how it turned out.

That sounds yummmmm. Ground chipotle chiles in place of the habanero might be really good too. Adds a little smoky flavor and not quite as hot, but if the "judges" of this dish like things hot, habaneros fit perfectly for flavor and heat eh?

Ancho would also be a good substitution

I use this marinade on anything from flank/skirt steak to chicken, to wild ducks and geese.

1 Beer
juice from 4 limes (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 T ground Cumin
1 T Oregano
1/2 cup Soy Sauce
1 can whole Jalapenos with the juice (Escabeche')
1 bunch of Cilantro torn up
1/2 t Allspice

Marinate for 24 hours, and grill hot and fast to no more than medium rare. Slice and serve on tortillas, with guacamole, black beans, fresh cilantro and a good Pico de Gallo. The chiles in the marinade are also grilled and served alongside the sliced duck to add to the tacos for more heat. This works with beef or chicken as well.

whatever it is....I love balsamic, but HATE it in steak marinades. ESPECIALLY flank/skirt.

so...leave balsamic out
