Carne Asada

A great marinade for steak!!! (You can even use it for chicken for Pollo Asada!)  Use skirt steak or flap meat, but any thin cut steak would work. This recipe is for up to 4 pounds of meat. Cook time does NOT include marinating time. You can use 4 pounds of chicken breast meat also.

1 –  Lime juiced
1 –  Lemon juiced
1/2 C. – Orange Juice
2 T. Chili Powder
1-l/2 T. Dried Oregano leaves
2 T. Ground Cumin
5 Cloves of Garlic chopped
1/2 C. Red Wine Vinegar
4 T. Olive oil
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 Bunch Cilantro, chopped (not stems)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a 1-gallon ziploc bag.
  2. Add meat, seal and massage marinade into meat.
  3. Marinate in bag for up to 24 hours, turning and massaging frequently. 4-6 hours for beef and 2-4 hours for chicken would work fine, also.
  4. Grill to medium rare for beef and of course for chicken till it’s cooked thoroughly.
  5. Serve whole, sliced, or diced for tacos or burritos!

  1. Ellen, I have never seen any meat in the store called skirt or flap meat.??? Do all of you and your sisters love to cook? I always love Kathy’s meals.

    Mary Lou, This is a hispanic recipe and I find this meat in the costco in Southern California but not in Washington. I love Carne Asada tacos in local restaurants so decided to try this at home, too. All my sisters can cook because my mom modeled it really well for us… blesssings…
