I used to use this a lot a few years ago when I lived in another part of the state, but could never find it after I moved away.
 
 
 
It's great stuff, with all-natural ingredients, and I really enjoyed it. The listed ingredients are Burgundy Wine Vinegar, Salt, Garlic, Corn, Oil, Lemon-Pepper Marinade, Black Pepper, Red Pepper. I'm not sure about the purpose of the corn, but everything else sounds like a wonderful combination.
 
I think I'll see if I can convince our local grocery to carry it; if not, this recipe might work almost as well:
 
Quote From http://www.erench.com/RECIPES/BBQ/SAUCE/BASQUE/index.htm:
 
One of my favorite marinades for steak, goat or lamb is Basque Meat Tenderizer/Barbecue Sauce, from Basque Company, as it tenderizes the meat and implants a subtle, somewhat tangy taste. However, the price of $4.29 for a 375ml (12.7 oz) bottle seems a bit steep to me.... [W]ith a little extra time on my hands and a bit of trial and error experimentation, I was able to come up with a very close copy [of the] recipe that probably only costs me about $1.00 or so to make:
 
1 /2 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1 /4 cup Burgundy Wine, any brand, I use Carlo Rossi
1/4 cup Lawry's Lemon-Pepper Marinade, DO NOT SUBSTITUTE brands
1/8 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon finely ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
 
In a plastic or ceramic mixing bowl, carefully measure ingredients and stir together until well blended. That's all there is to it! Transfer to approprate container and store, with lid tightly closed in refrigerator. The marinade will store indefinitely.
 
Yield:  1 cup; recipe can be easily halved, doubled, etc.

 
It looks like the real thing, and tastes very similar to the real thing, and my Basque Marinade tenderizes and marinates steak, pork, goat and lamb.
 
I like to marinate steak, goat or lamb in the Basque Sauce overnight before grilling.  I've also used in on pork with good results.
 
I'd love to try this (with garlic instead of garlic salt) and I'd like to see if I'd be able to take that "Lawry's Lemon Pepper Marinade" and work out an all-natural solution - perhaps lemon juice and a couple of other things - definitely worth experimenting with....

This stuff can be a bit hard to find, but I did come across this, today:

http://www.farawayfoods.com/basquemeat.html

Using the HOLIDAY coupon code, you get 5$ off any order over 15$; that is "almost" like getting a free bottle of this, so I have asked The Beautiful Mrs. Tas to work her online shopping magic....

I really enjoy this marinade, and look forward to cooking with it again ~
