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 :)

Tacos:
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

Cooking:
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)

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