Carne Asada

Jan 15th
This was a last minute random little creation we came up with.
We were planning on having people over and feeding a big group.
The plans fell through a little bit but we had a big pack of carne asada we needed to use.
(**note—I’ve found that Costco carries the best!!)
Even though our menu of tacos was scratched, that was no reason not to have a meat party.
We decided to marinate the meat for a couple days.
Here’s what we did:
I can’t remember every spice that we put on but it was a random bunch.
So look in your cupboard and see what you’ve got.
Lemon pepper, seasoned salt, garlic salt, ground pepper,
cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper flakes….the more the merrier.
Serisously.
Sprinkle a little of each all over the meat and throw in a plastic bag!
Once the meat is in the bag, slice a white onion.
Throw it on it…won’t hurt.
We then squeezed the juice of 2 lemons and 2 limes in.
Poured half a can of beer.
(Coors Light to be exact)
Why not add some orange juice? Sure!
A splash did wonders!
Now let this sit for a day or two in the fridge!
When you are ready to have BBQ this juicy marinated bad boy!
The higher the heat the better!
I like carne asada best when the outside is a little crispy, then juicy inside!
I put some baked potatoes in the oven to have with.
Was the perfect meal!
Carne asada would also go great in a big BBQ salad!
Tacos are easy too!!
Enjoy!!
