Carne asada is a very popular dish in Mexico that is served at barbecues, family reunions, and other gatherings. With all of the sun that we have been getting lately here, it is also a perfect meal to enjoy in the backyard as a family.
The key to this recipe is to have a thin cut of meat (flank steak is usually a good choice), that you can marinate for hours so that the flavor of all of the delicious seasonings penetrate the meat. To be honest, this is a pretty easy dish to make, but there are some tricks to making sure that the meat doesn’t dry out.
The marinade for this version of carne asada consists of freshly squeezed orange juice, garlic, onion, pepper, salt, and cumin.
One of the best parts about making this recipe is cooking it on the grill and allowing the delicious smell permeate throughout your house!
Of course you will want to serve it with pico de gallo, grilled green onions, grilled jalapenos, and of course a delicious homemade salsa.
I love using my indoor grill pan, especially when it is cold outside and I have to cook inside. Even though Spring is almost here, we actually have snow on the way for the next few days – but that can’t keep me from enjoying my favorite Mexican recipes!
Like I said above, this recipe is perfect for family gatherings and more. I remember how I would always get together with all of my cousins and other relatives when we were younger to play games, have fun, and enjoy some delicious carne asada. Just smelling this throughout my house today brought back so many wonderful memories and I am happy to share it with all of you!
