Recipe by Chef John
"Despite the awkward name, this fast and user-friendly wet rub did a fine job flavoring some carne asada I grilled recently (yes, that was redundant). I'm calling it Spanish mustard since I spiked the Dijon with a couple of my favorite ingredients of all time: smoked paprika and sherry vinegar. You can use any thin flap meat (flap steak, skirt steak, round steak) instead of the flank steak."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Delicious and so flavorful!! My husband Is soooo fickle about food - many times Ive seen him take two bites of a restaurant meal, then push the plate away like "Nah" and sit there watching me eat lol. And even more so when It comes to meats. So when he came home from the grocery with carne asada, being that he's never had It, does NOT like Mexican food and neither of us is good at cooking meat, I'm like "What do you expect me to do with this?!"....Found this recipe, looked simple enough, prepared the marinade with some substitutions, and also had to cook it in a pan...So, the dijon that we used was a 99c store brand, the vinegar was a mix of apple cider vin and dark balsamic, and we had no paprika so used a few shakes of a premade steak seasoning that contained some...the meat sat at room temperature as we prepared the marinade, and then stayed soaking In It on the counter for well over an hour. We prepared Allrecipes Mushroom and Gorgonzola risotto, and sauteed vegetables In the meantime...were a little nervous about teflon-pan frying the meat - thought that it might come out a little chewy...Final verdict? Delicious, flavorful, like butter!! I think the staying at room temp thing may have been the key. We didn't end up eating til 1:30 a.m. lol (it was New Years Eve) but we ended up having a SPECTACULAR meal!
This was really tasty! Only marinated the beef about 30 minutes in the mixture and it was still awesome. We used white wine vinegar because I couldn't find sherry vinegar at my local store. Make sure you used SMOKED paprika - well worth the money. Serve with avocado like the picture shows. Will definitely be making again!
Loved this recipe although I couldn't find sherry vinegar anywhere. I used garlic red wine vinegar and added a little sherry for the flavor. It was excellent!
Loved this recipe, beautiful flavour, and better yet a new family favourite!
Just tried this. It is excellent, not overwhelming marinade. I wanted more kick so I added "Christmas mix" afterwards. Made my first marinade, thank you for the great recipe!
