Carne Asada typically means beef, this Carne Asada Marinade recipe is also good with chicken or pork. If you're looking for an authentic Mexican dish, then this is an awesome marinade to start with.
Carne Asada is an authentic Mexican dish and the real secret to optimum flavor key is in mastering the marinade. Your choice of meat is critical and I'm partial to skirt steak but you can also use flank steak or flat iron steak.The acid from the citrus juices also tenderizes even the toughest cuts of meat.
For a Cuban flavoring twist I recommend using our Mojo Seasoning for the seasoning in this marinade. The juice in the marinade marries perfectly with the citrus zest in the seasoning blend. Our Mojo Seasoning is hand blended with a fragrant combination of garlic, black pepper, lime, orange, cumin and onion.
The Tex-Mex version of this is served with flour tortillas and for a healthier alternative you can also use whole wheat flour tortillas. Serve with fresh Pico De Gallo, reduced fat Mexican style shredded cheese and some homemade guacamole. For a more authentic dish, serve with a side of rice and beans (cooked fresh of course).
This skirt steak marinade recipe is a very good source of protein and vitamin B12, a good source of Zinc and is low in Sodium. The downside? This recipe is high in saturated fat.
