finely chopped canned chipotle pepper
fresh cilantro, chopped
this was fabulous. I did it it in the crock pot and the meat was like butter!! delicious!!
This was okay, it was very citrusy. I wished more of the spice flavors came through.
Ok, so initially (upon first bite) I was taken aback by the overpowering citrus flavor. As I continued to eat, it got better. I don't recommend this as a piece of meat by itself, but rather, shredded or chopped for tacos or burritos. You talk about a SUPERB taco meat?!?!?!?!!!! OUTSTANDING!!!!!! It made enough that I have a sigificant amount left for freezing to be used for tacos again down the road. Thanks for this recipe!
Thanks Lisa for sumitting this recipe.The meat came out juicy, flavouful and tender,this marinade is very similar to what they use at carnicerias (mex. butcher's shop).The only changes i made was to omitt the soy sauce and I also added chopped green onios to the marinade,very good will use many times.
This was my first time making carne asada for the whole family and I have to say it came out delicious. It came out so good that I have now become in charge of the meat for future gatherings. I call it my secret recipe. Little do they know I got it from All recipes. YUMMY!
I could not find canned chipotle peppers, so I substituted 1 tsp. Tabasco Chipotle Sauce. I marinaded the steaks for 36 hours, cooked them on a "George Foreman" style electric grill and they were wonderful.
Great flavor. I used chipolte peppers in adobe sauce, I don't know if that made a difference but it was great. Plus I added some crushed red pepper. Best tasting flap meat I ever had. I marinated it 24 hours.
followed everything but left out the cilantro, I hate the stuff! Made on the grill and it was very tender which is a trick sometimes with flank steak. Thanks Lisa.
