Papaya has one of nature's strongest tenderizers and makes a great ingredient for a good marinade. Use papaya on tough cuts of meat for optimal results. Don't worry, the flavor of the fruit won't overpower the marinade or the meat.
Chop papaya into small chunks. Place into a food processor with remaining ingredients. Pulse until mixture is pureed, about 10 to 12 pulses. Add a few tablespoons of water if the mixture is too thick.
Place into a resealable container and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours before using. Marinate beef for 6 hours, poultry for about 2 hours. The mixture will keep in the fridge for 4 to 5 days after initial preparation.
Because of the natural enzyme papain in papayas, this marinade is great for particularly tough cuts of meat.
