This is an amazing recipe for carne asada. I tried probably thirty different recipes until I found this one. Now this is the only one I will make. It is just that good.

Oh yummy! I must confess I used chicken breast no longer carne asada but the marinade was perfect!! I just used strips of chicken and placed foil on the grill. Served in soft flour tortillas w/ all the family faves...sour cream, avocado, diced white onion and no one touched the salsa because it was just that good! Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all marinade ingredients together to combine. Marinate flank steak in the mixture in the refrigerator for one hour or more. Remove the steak from the marinade and barbecue meat until done.
  2. Cut into strips or dice meat, and serve with warm corn tortillas with salsa and guacamole. Or, plase in flour tortilla and roll up burrito-style with beans, rice, cheese, and sour cream.
