Carne Asada

There are many ways to make Carne Asada, but this is the way I prefer to make mine. I learned how to make this from my Son's father who was originally from Mexico. Some people I know have marinated their meat with Beer or add Orange juice to the Marinate, but I haven't desired to make mine that way. Either way they are all good ways. Some people also like to grill green onions & jalapenos at the same time and eat w/ their Carne Asada as well. Enjoy.

Prep:

25 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Grill

Ingredients

1 lb
skirt steak, thinly sliced (i prefer to buy at the mexican store, but you can request it i assume at a store with a meat dept.)
1
lime
A few dash(es)
granulated garlic (i get this in the hispanic isle in packages) or you can use any.
A few dash(es)
johnny's seasoning salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
You will want to Marinate your Meat with the Lime Juice (squeeze it from your lime, either with your hand or I have a lime squeezer that does it for me. IMO it is much easier, I got this at a Mexican store) you can find them anywhere made of other materials as well. Season with granulated garlic & Johnny's seasoning. Let Marinate while you heat your grill or as long as you prefer.
2
Place meat on grill and cook on hot open flame or gas grill. till done.
3
Also, you can make this under the broiler on a broiler pan. I have done that when I didn't feel like using the grill OR when it's during the Winter time. I personally do not prefer my Carne Asada made on a stove top. I do know some that like to make it that way as well though in Oil. Anyway you want it still will turn out yummy.
