It wasn't outside, but it was good - My first Carne Asada

So I took my first bash at making Carne Asada, not all went to plan: No Jalapeno, I used a mix of flank and ribeye steak as I couldn't find any skirt steak, and I did it on a George Foreman grill, but it turned out good and tasty! I left it to marinade in a ziplock for about 16 hours.



^ Post marinade



^ The GF grill, aptly abbreviated, was a little char happy



^ Taste testing was gooooood



The tortillas let the meat down, but it was still enjoyable!

I really like barbacoa, but this was my first time trying carne asada. The flavour profile was confusing to my brain, but it was very tasty and I'll be cooking it again!

Getting ready for Texas?  I hear there is some really good foods out there.  Different from ours here in California but very tasty.

More like getting ready for the in-laws by learning to cook Mexican dishes  :ahhh

Looks good. :drool: Wondering what you used for the marinade?

This is mostly from memory, but covers it pretty well:

OJ (1/2 cup)
Distilled Vinegar (2 tablespoons, recipe called for white, I didn't want to buy a bottle when I figured this would do)
Garlic (recipe called for 4 crushed cloves, they're sold in threes, so three cloves and a generous sprinkling of ground garlic)
salt (1/2 teaspoon)
pepper (1/4 teaspoon)
Lime juice (two limes worth)
Cilantro (1 cup, never saw that here, learned we call it coriander)
1/4 cup sunflower oil (asked for vegetable, but again, wasn't buying a whole container for this)

It also asked for 1 Jalapeno, but the store didn't have any and I didn't particularly want to deal with chilles at this time

Hope that helps, I recommend trying it  :tu:
