Carne Asada

I can not tell you how many times we have had a Carne Asada with our family. Typically if we have a family function we will BBQ Carne Asada. This dish is a dish that makes me happy because it always involved inviting friends and family over to eat. The house would be full of noise and laughter and the meat could be cooking outside while the rest was being done by the women inside. My husband usually grills the meat and it is the one thing that most of the men in our family actually know how to grill. I hope you enjoy this dish with friends and or family and have a great time eating and hanging out!

2 pounds Ranchera (flank or skirt steak)

As seen in the picture: to taste
Black Pepper
Garlic Powder
White Onion (sliced)
Oranges (or lemons if you like)

  1. You are going to layer the steak down as you prepare it. About 12 hours.
  2. Be generous with the salt as I did not and it needed more.
  3. You are just going to dash the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano to each side of every piece to flavor the meat, be generous.
  4. Also squeeze the orange right out of the peel to each side of the meat as you layer it.
  5. Grill to perfection!
You must serve this with the following:Here's to some good food!
