Carne asada is a typical Mexican dish that is wonderful served with rice and beans or in burritos and tacos. This recipe requires some time as the meat needs to marinate for a minimum of 1 hour. I had it in the fridge for 4 hours. The final result is amazingly delicious! This is what you need to do for these:
1 to 2 pounds of thin flank steaks
¼ cup lime juice
¼ cup olive oil
1 large jalapeno
¼ bunch cilantro
4 large garlic cloves
2 TBS white vinegar
1 tsp ground cumin
1 TBS sugar
Salt & Pepper
Rinse and pat dry the meat. Place it in a non-reactive container and add all of the ingredients. Use your hands to coat the entire pieces well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Remove the meat from the marinade and grill or cook in a large, hot skillet with a little bit of oil.
Serve with rice and beans or in burritos and tacos. Enjoy!
