The Carne Asada marinade still needs a little tweaking. Next time I'm gonna do 3 oranges and one lime. The lime juice was a little too dominant this time.

Carne Asada Marinade 8.21.10


Marinade:
Zest and juice of 2 limes
Zest and juice of 2 oranges
bunch cilantro, chop stems and leaves
6-8 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
one med yellow onion sliced pretty thin
3/8 cup of olive oil

2 lbs flap meat
Lightly sprinkle beef both sides with some asada seasoning.

marinated meat for approx 6 hours.

Re: Carne Asada and Al Pastor Tacos

I haven't seen Flap steak at the local grocery. Are Flank and Skirt similar?

Re: Carne Asada and Al Pastor Tacos

I believe flap,flank and skirt are all very similar. Any real thin sliced beef will work
