If you like recipes “from scratch”, this is great; better yet, go to your local carneceria and order a pound of pre-seasoned carne asada to grill.


Prep 2 hours∙ Cook 20 mins∙ Makes Serves 4 – 6


  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 (2 pound) flank steak


In a gallon size resealable bag, combine lime juice, crushed garlic, orange juice, cilantro, salt, pepper, olive oil, jalapeno, and vinegar. Squeeze it around to mix it up.

Put the entire flank steak into the resealable bag. Seal it up tight. Make sure all the meat is exposed to the marinade, squishing the bag around to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.

Heat an outdoor grill to high heat.

Remove the flank steak from the marinade, and discard excess marinade. Cook on the grill for 7 to 10 minutes per side.

Once done, remove from heat and let rest 10 minutes. Slice against the grain, and serve.
