Carne Asada Marinade

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Charmie777

A great marinade for steak!!! (You can even use it for chicken for Pollo Asada!) I use skirt steak for flap meat, but any thin cut steak would work. This recipe is for up to 4 pounds of meat. Cook time does NOT include marinating time.

I made this with chicken breasts that I had cut into 1-inch chunks and marinated all day. Then with my very hot cast iron frying pan, I cooked until the chicken was just done. I served this as make your own burritos, and it was fantastic. Thanks for a great recipe Charmie!
