We had this last night for dinner, cooked on a gas grill. Very Good! I only had time to marinate for 2 hours and the steak turned out fine. We had the very thinly sliced steak on fresh flour tortillas with grilled peppers, onions, guacamole, salsa and sour cream. Great dinner! Thanks Kevin!
Wow....don't know what to say about this one except that I definitely won't be trying it again. Way, way too much citrus...I'm thinking lime and lemon. Just not good. And to be fair, it could have been me...but I did follow the recipe. I actually had to add things after it was cooked just to make it some what better....didn't work. Sorry.
Very easy to make. Used this recipe for a reunion and it went over very well. The flavor of the meat was terrific, what interesting things you can do with tequila.
Sorry folks. We didn't like this one at all. We made the recipe exactly as written, marinated it all day long, and grilled it up for dinner. Not a single one of us (family of four) liked the flavor of the carne asada. It mostly tasted slightly sour. The tequila and fruit juices overcame the onion and garlic which were not even recognizable as flavors. It had no resemblance at all to any carne asada flavor I've ever had in a restaurant.
Well...it smelled like a margarita and before I added the garlic, onions and pepper I thought about drinking it! Anyway, I worried after I added the tequila because I could no longer smell the citrus. After it was grilled it tasted okay, but it was pretty bland. We feel there is way too much tequila in the marinade, that it drowns out the citrus flavor that you definitely want to taste. I will try it again and reduce the tequila by at least half, likely down to 2 tbl. I marinated it for about 7 hours and served it with sauteed onions, peppers and habanaros and with fresh avocado. Thanks!!
Loved the marinade and will definitely make it again. Thanks
This was awesome. I actually had to double the recipe, and it turned out wonderful. Cooking on the grill is the way to go. Great flavor. We love Carne Asada, and this is a great recipe! It was a hit with all of our guests - and all of our kids!
I thought the flavor of the marinade was good, but cooked the steaks on the stovetop since our grill was covered in a layer of ice and snow. I think it would taste a lot better cooked on the grill.
I've done this twice now, once on the grill and once inside. The grill is the way to go! I love the taste of the marinade, it's so easy too!
Kevin, this carne asada was HEAVEN. Enjoyed the taste very much. You could taste eveything in the marinade all the way to the tabasco! It was just amazing! Thanks a million for giving me another recipe for my arsenal.
