Thank you! I will do that tomorrow if that is ok. I tried to make one work, but it just wouldn't.

Right now I am in a chat room trying to get others to sign in so copying and pasting some of the wonderful messages that have been sent to me in welcome and telling them about the site.

I will find the one I was trying to use tomorrow and send it to you. Thank you so much.

Hahahahaha, Eric you're doing it again (hijacking)...and this time, Patti is in on it! Very Happy

Karen, I didn't get to make the fajitas this weekend (Jim, my hubby, and the girls wanted pizza, so I was out voted) But I'm anxious to try them!

Jim wanted to try them at work too (he's a firefighter), but (obviously) they can't have alcohol there so we were wondering if a non-alcoholic beer would work? Or, what would you substitute? Or, another option would be for him to mix it up the nite before, then take it with him in the morning, leaving it to marinade the rest of the day til dinner. Would that be too long for a "beer" marinade?

I think a near beer would work just fine. The alcohol will cook out of it and just leaves a hint of beer taste behind and I think you can still get that in alcohol free beer just fine. Use lots of cilantro though. I hope Jim and his fellow firefighters enjoy them as much as I do.

LOL, I knew that the alcohol would cook off, what I actually meant was they wouldn't be able to have the actual bottle of beer (nor near beer) on the premises at all, so he would have to make the marinade at home, then take it in. I guess I was wondering how long it could marinade before you HAD to cook it??? Sorry, I didn't realize what my post sounded like until you answered HA!

Of course that is what you meant! Sheesh. Not sure why I didn't realize that in the first place.

An overnight marinade would only make it taste better. I usually place it in the marinade while cooking that nights evening meal for the next night. I just would not allow it to marinade more then 24 hours. The beer tends to break down the fibers in the meat after that and make it sort of soft.
