Yum, yum, yum.  I am an annoyingly picky person meat eater.  Not when it came to this meal though, this recipe is definitely a winner.  I loved the flavor, and although this is part of the old camera series, even the picture is making me want to make it again immediately.  Best part…super easy to throw together ahead of time!

Carne Asada

Recipe found at : For the Love of Cooking (she’s got a great first name by the way ;))

  • 1 1/2 – 2 lbs of flank steak
  • 1/3 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1-2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp.  oregano (I used dried.)
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

Desired toppings: Gucamole, Salsa, Cheese, Taco Shells/Tortillas

Put all the ingredients in a gallon size food storage bag including the flank steak.  Mush it around so that everything is evenly incorporated, and marinate in the refrigerator for 6 hours at the minimum or overnight.    Grill the steak (or you could probably also cook it in the oven), and let rest for 10 minutes otherwise the juices will all run out when you slice it.  Flank steak will be very tough if you don’t cut against the grain, so make sure to slice it against the grain into chunks or small pieces.  Top with desired toppings and serve.
