Carne Asada (Grilled Steak)
12 mins (prep 5, cooking 7)
7 ingredients
4-6 servings
Carne asada, or grilled meat, is great backyard grill food. It is enjoyed throughout Central America and Mexico. Many recipes get very elaborate with the marinade ingredients, but the original recipe relies on a simple combination of onions and citrus juice to highlight the flavor of the beef. The ingredient measurements are pretty vague, but it lets you make it according to your own taste. Personally, I would use the maximum amounts of everything. Enjoy!
