Marinated flank steak is grilled to perfection for the best Authentic Carne Asada. This tender, grilled meat is full of authentic Mexican flavor.   I’ve lived in Southern California for a good 1/3 of my life. Being so close to Mexico you get spoiled with a lot of really great Baja Mexican style food. We’ve been in Utah long enough that I needed to pay homage to our close-to-Mexico roots with some authentic carne asada. When I realized I have never shared the recipe….well, you are welcome. My recipe is based off of one from the world renowned chef of Mexican Cuisine, Rick Bayless. If you ever have the chance to go to his restaurant, Frontera Grill, in Chicago….GO! It’s unreal!   Carne Asada is all about the marinade. Take a nice piece of steak, marinate it with some delicious flavors, and then plop that sucker on the grill for a flavorful piece of beef you can eat plain, on a taco, burrito, or anything else you can think of.   Watch the full length video below where I personally walk you through every step of the recipe.

Carne Asada typically means beef, this Carne Asada Marinade recipe is also good with chicken or pork. If you’re looking for an authentic Mexican dish, then this is an awesome marinade to start with. Carne Asada is an authentic Mexican dish and the real secret to optimum flavor key is in mastering the marinade. Your choice of meat is critical and I’m partial to skirt steak but you can also use flank steak or flat iron steak.The acid from the citrus juices also tenderizes even the toughest cuts of meat. For a Cuban flavoring twist I recommend using our Mojo Seasoning for the seasoning in this marinade. The juice in the marinade marries perfectly with the citrus zest in the seasoning blend. Our Mojo Seasoning is hand blended with a fragrant combination of garlic, black pepper, lime, orange, cumin and onion. The Tex-Mex version of this is served with flour tortillas and for a healthier alternative you can also use whole wheat flour tortillas. Serve with fresh Pico De Gallo, reduced fat Mexican style shredded cheese and some homemade guacamole. For a more authentic dish, serve with a side of rice and beans (cooked fresh of course). This skirt steak marinade recipe is a very good source of protein and vitamin B12, a good source of Zinc and is low in Sodium. The downside? This recipe is high in saturated fat.

Prep25 m Cook10 m Ready In1 h 35 m Lay the flank steak in a large glass baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar, soy sauce, 4 cloves of garlic, juice of two limes, and olive oil. Season with salt, black pepper, white pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, oregano, cumin and paprika. Whisk until well blended, then pour over the steak in the dish. Turn over once to coat both sides. Cover with plastic wrap, and marinate for 1 to 8 hours. In a small bowl, stir together 1 chopped white onion, cilantro, and the juice of 1 lime. Set aside to use as a relish for the tacos. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Toast chile pods in the skillet for a few minutes, then remove to a bowl of water to soak for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place the tomatoes, 1 onion, jalapenos, and 4 cloves of garlic onto a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes, until toasted but not burnt. Place the roasted vegetables, and soaked chile pods into a blender or food processor, along with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cut the marinated flank steak into cubes or strips. Cook, stirring constantly, until the meat is cooked through and most of the liquid has evaporated. Warm the tortillas in a skillet for about a minute on each side to make them pliable. Tortillas may also be warmed in a microwave oven. Arrange two or three tortillas on a plate, and lay a generous amount of beef over them. Top with a sprinkle of the onion relish and a large spoonful of the pureed salsa. Add as much cheese as you like. Garnish with lime wedges, and serve.

Authentic Carne Asada Recipe

Carne asada literally translates to “grilled beef,” and, at its simplest, it can be no more than a steak, seasoned with salt and pepper, cooked over a hot fire. Yet colloquially, when we hear the term “carne asada,” we immediately think of the marinated meats you’re going to chop up and stuff into your tacos, burritos, or cemitas. But what exactly is in that marinade? Depending on whom you ask, you’ll get any number of different answers. Lime juice, garlic, and herbs are often used. Some recipes call for dried or fresh chilies. Still others go for a liquid fajita-style marinade with soy or Worcestershire sauce.

Rating Great Authentic Carne & Pollo Asada Marinade by: Adolph J Also from Brawley, Ca. Many of my relatives use this marinade. A good suggestion is to let the marinade do it’s magic for 24 hrs before putting on the grill. Once a year I go back to my home town to experience the great “street tacos” in many local restaurants. I use get the same flavor in the “street tacos” in Mexicali, B.C.For all those who haven’t tried this marinade, I say “go for it”. Its a great crowd pleaser. Thank you for a great memory. I use this marinade on Pollo Asada too.A.J.

From time to time I receive e-mails asking some common questions for an Authentic Carne Asada recipe, the first one being how to marinate the meat. I always give out the same answer: every cook or grill master has their own unique way of seasoning their meat. In Mexico, if you were using a high-quality meat, like those from the state of Sonora, for example, you would just add salt, but there are other marinating techniques and customs that vary depending on the region of the country that you’re dealing with. For example, in the south and in the Gulf of Mexico, where bitter orange (Seville orange) is grown, cooks will add some of its juice to the meat; in other regions, they will add lime juice, and others will add a splash of beer while grilling or marinating the meat. Everyone has their own preference of beer, as well.
