The name Carne Asada is often used to describe a social event where family and close friends gather. It is especially popular in northern Mexico, where it is considered a staple food and is the most common dish served at parties, celebrations and other events.
2 pounds skirt steak trimmed of excess fat
Carne Asada Marinade
1 jalapeño seeded and minced
4 cloves garlic minced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves chopped
juice of 1 orange
juice of 1 lime
juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a large glass baking dish whisk together Cane Asada marinade ingredients until combined, jalapeño through black pepper. Add skirt steak in a single layer, turning to coat with marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, but no longer than 8 hours (longer will begin to break down the meat).
Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high.
Grill steaks for 7 to 10 minutes per side, turning once for medium-rare.
