Carne Asada

Pin It

This Carne Asada turned out really good. 

I think the marinade was a perfect blend of ingredients and 
gave the steak great depth of flavor.

You need to let it rest just a few minutes before you slice it, 
and remember to slice it against the grain.

Really tasty wrapped in shells with a little
salsa fresca and Guacamole Taquero.

You can get the recipe and read more about the Guacamole here.

Carne Asada

2 lbs flank steak
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped (remove seeds if desired)
2 tbsp chopped parsley
Juice of 2 limes
Juice of 1 orange
2 tbsp white vinegar
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp adobo (or cumin)
½ cup olive oil
1 cup beer
Fresh cracked pepper

Lay out steak in a baking dish. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over steak. Marinate at least 1 hour, up to 4 hours.

Remove steak from marinade and cook on a preheated grill, 7-10 minutes per side for medium rare, or until desired doneness.

Let rest for a couple minutes, then thinly slice at an angle, opposite direction of grain.
