DIRECTIONS

  • Marinate meat, then prepare garnish ingredients and salsa before grilling meat.
  • Plan to have tortillas warmed as you are ready to serve meat.
  • For Carne asada: Marinate the thin steaks in lime juice in a shallow glass dish.
  • Let set for 1 minutes, then add garlic, crushed red chile, black pepper, and Mexican oregano (if desired).
  • Marinate in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes, but longer is better.
  • When grill is red hot, grill steaks on each side for 1-2 minutes.
  • Meat is thin and cooks quickly.
  • Sprinkle meat with coarse salt as it cooks.
  • Let meat cool a couple of minutes, then cut into thin strips against the grain.
  • Serve immediately with warmed tortillas, salsa and garnishes.
  • Salsa: combine all ingredients and season to taste.
  • You should have about 1 1/4 cups.
