In Mexican cuisine, carne asada literally means 'grilled meat'. The meat is a very thin flank steak. It can be served whole as a main dish or chopped and used in tacos, burritos, or quesadillas. Carne Asada is the Mexican equivalent of barbecue. I mean that in the party sense of the word. It brings together friends, family, alcohol, & a great time! It's my favorite thing to do in the summer. I really enjoy entertaining and summertime is carne asada time. Actually, anytime is carne asada time!  This dish is a very 'social' dish. This is the best marinade for Carne Asada you could possibly try!



  • 4 lbs flank steak or 'ranchera'

  • 1 onion

  • 1 bunch cilantro

  • 2 tblspns salt

  • 2 tblspns red pepper

  • 2 tblspns black pepper

  • 4 tblspns cumin

  • 1 bottle beer

  • 1 jalapeño



  1. Add all ingredients to marinated meat and let marinade for few hour or preferably over night.

  2. Barbecue to desired wellness.

  3. Serve with favorite toppings. I serve it with tortillas, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cilantro, onions, corn, and lime!
