Ultimate Carne Asada Marinade

Carne Asada seems to be the easiest meat dish to prepare at barbecues. It is usually affordable and available at most supermarkets or butcher shops. It already comes marinated and ready to grill, no wonder it is everyone’s choice, but have you ever read the ingredients of a store-bought carne asada marinade? The ones I have gotten to examine are filled with canola oil, soy, wheat, MSG, preservatives and other questionable ingredients.

This Carne Asada Marinade is made with ingredients and spices that are commonly found in most households and can be used with any kind of meat, although I like it best with grass-fed skirt steak. It has been my “secret” recipe for years, but I am feeling extra generous today.

You can serve it with Mexican cauli-rice, turnip fries or as jicama shell tacos

Let me introduce you to your new favorite carne asada recipe!
