Carne Asada

This recipe is probably the best tasting carne asada I've ever made. Very flavorful and just enough of a little kick. I didn't follow the entire recipe (found HERE) because of time and a lack of ingredients, but the marinade I made came out wonderfully. I grilled the meat and heated up the tortillas on the BBQ. I don't like really spicy things but this was great. The chili pepper did get a little bit much after one taco but I think if I add guacamole or sour cream next time it will be perfect.

Carne Asada Marinade


3 pounds flank steak
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 limes, juiced
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
Mix all ingredients, except steak, in a large bowl. Add meat and let marinate 1-3 hours. Grill until meat gets a nice brown carmalized char.
