Carne Asada - the Real Deal
18 mins (prep 10, cooking 8)
12 ingredients
4-6 servings
This recipe has been in my family for many years. Originally, we are from Jalisco, Mexico where this Mexican favorite originated. This is better than anything you'll ever get in a "corporate" mexican restaurant in the U.S. Sorry, El Torito...Prep time does not include marinating time of one hour (min).
