Carne Asada

Here’s to Taco Tuesdays at home with a sure bet. Cheers!

If you’re thinking the time it takes to marinade the meat is just too long, here is my secret. I prepare the marinade and steak in advance, throw it into a freezer bag and freeze it. You just need to make sure you use freezer bags. Then when you’re ready to have Carne Asada, steak, burritos, tacos or salad just remove the bag from the freezer the day before and place it in the refrigerator to thaw and you will have yourself some great Carne Asada for the grill.

  1. Flank steak 3-4 lbs
  2. Smoked Paprika 4 tablespoons
  3. Mexican red chili 2 tablespoons
  4. 1 cup lime juice
  5. 2 jalapenos
  6. 1 bunch cilantro (cut the bottom 1 inch and toss you’re going to use the rest including the stems; chop it in 1 inch parts)
  7. salt and pepper to taste

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until it is a liquid paste texture. Add flank steak and let marinade for 4-24 hours. Grill on medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side.
