Carne Asada Tacos Recipe
My uncle lives in Southern California...pretty much as south as you can get in California. Every time he comes to visit he brings a bunch of carne asada. (Sorry Lynn, but it might be my favorite part about you visiting:)). This recipe is so packed with flavor and is so darn good, you will thank me for it.
We use chicken and steak, so depending on what kind of meat fan you are, that is what you will want to get at the store (or get both!). Also, you want to marinate this for at least 12 hours. So keep that in mind when you make this. The longer it marinates, the better it tastes!
PS...ignore this horrible picture, it was taken with our phone a few months ago!
- 3 pounds carne asada (ask your butcher)
- 1/3 cup white vinegar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper
Mix together all the ingredients. In a zip lock bag add meat and mixture. Let marinate for at least 12 hours. Cook on the grill for about 5 minutes on each side. Then cut into small strips. Serve on tortillas with your favorite taco toppings. You really don't need much because the meat is the star so maybe just a little sour cream, cheese and tomatoes. Enjoy.
