extra virgin olive oil
fresh lemon juice
garlic, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
This is the true Carne Asada recipe, except you are supposed to use lime juice instead of lemon juice. Try using 2 tablespoons instead too. This will give you the true Carne Asada taste. This simple taste, however, does not cater to everyone. I simply love it!
Nada, zippo, NOTHING like Mexican Carne Asada. I waisted some expensive skirt steak on this lemony ick of a marinade. Not going to try this ever again!
This is an easy to prepare recipe, with excellant flavor. Since I moved from California, I cannot get Carne Asada Burrito's anywhere, so when I saw this recipe, I had to try it. With the right meat, this makes a hell of a Carne Asada Burrito.
This recipe was not as flavorable as I would of like it to be. But the good thing about it is that you can add your own seasoning to it. I used cumin and red chili powder. Used limes instead of lemons. Marinated over night. Grilled it. Taste Great!
My husband grew up in a hispanic household in San Francisco and ate often at the great taquerias in the city. I used this marinade on some top sirloin steaks, and he said this is the taste he grew up with. He said it was "perfect!". I'll definately hang on to this recipe!
Love Carne Asada and with the addition of some fresh orange juice and grated orange rind (both suggestions from friends in Mexico) tastes just like the taco stands!
This is by far the easiest marinade to make but it is wonderful and the meat, shrimp (Kabobs), veggies etc. are very tasty and tender.
only thing i changed was i added onion salt instead of regular and chilli powder(of medium spice), i cut up 2 lbs carne asada into thin strips and marinaded for 5 hours. I then drained off most of the marinade and browned the meat in a skillet over med heat and used them in burritos. Very tender. I loved this recipe and so did my hubby. I will make this again.
