Carne Asada :)

This is all going to be worth it in less than 2 hours :)

Good thing I had a cute helper

Carne Asada Tacos:

Meat Marinade:

"Mojo Sauce" (food network)

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
My directions:
Add all ingredients to a blender, way faster than using a mortar and pestle :)

1.5 lb- 2lb thinly slice sirloin steak (I buy whatever is cheapest other than chuck steak), marinated the steak 1-6 hours in the "mojo sauce"
- I dice the meat because it marinates better and cooks faster

Cook the meat until desired done-ness on the the stove and then serve in pan warmed corn tortillas (I like to spray them with Pam to make them crispy)

Guacamole, cilantro, white onions minced, lime wedges, salsa of your choice
