Carne Asada
  • 2 lbs flank steak or skirt steaks
  • 4 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • large handful of cilantro, chopped
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients and pour into a large zip lock baggy. Add the steaks and make sure the marinade is mixed all around them. Refrigerate 1 - 4 hours (or over night). When ready to grill, remove from marinade (discarding the marinade) season the steaks with a bit of salt and pepper. Since I don't do the grilling in this household, I can't tell you what to do...other than grill and enjoy!!
My local hispanic market didnt have any beef carne asada the other day. So I bought some pre-chopped beef for stir fry and sound this recipe for the marinade. It smells soooo wonderful!!
