Traditional Carne Asada 


  • 2 Tablespoons Carne Asada Seasoning*
  • Juice from one Lime (fresh)
  • 1/2 Cup Orange Juice
  • 1/2 White Onion (Thinly Sliced)
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro (Chopped) *Optional*
  • 2 Pounds Skirt or Flank steak

*Equal parts: salt, garlic powder, sugar, paprika. Dashes: Cumin, oregano, black pepper, cayenne pepper. ( You can use what’s leftover as a season salt for anything else).

Step 1: 

In a small bowl, mix together lime juice, orange juice, seasoning and cilantro.

Step 2: 

In a shallow dish, place the carne asada and onions down. Cover with the marinade making sure to coat both sides of the meat. Cover and place in the fridge for a minimum of at least 45 minutes.

Remember the longer you allow it marinate, the more flavor the meat will have.

Step 3: 

Thirty to forty minutes before you plan on grilling your meat, remove from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature.

By doing this, the meat will cook more evenly.

Step 4: 

Grill over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes per side. Allow to rest for five minutes before slicing and enjoying.

Eat with tortillas and all the fixings or just by itself! Just enjoy it!
