I am cuckoo-CRAZY for Mexican food lately. I mean, I’ve always enjoyed it and luckily living in California great Mexican food is readily available. Buuuut, my love of Mexican food has honestly become a full blown obsession this year!

I can’t go out to eat all the time so I have been perfecting my homemade Mexican dishes. This Carne Asada Recipe has been a regular on my menu.

This carne asada is super easy to make and tastes phenomenal on just about anything! Use it on tacos, sandwiches, burrito bowls or wraps.

Flatout Foldit Artisan Flatbread is perfect with this carne asada. Just fold the uniquely shaped bread to make an awesome flatbread sandwich!

When I can get it, I use thinly sliced round tip steak for my carne asada. It isn’t authentic but it doesn’t require as much marinating because it is a more tender cut.

Sliced skirt or flank steak can also be used to make this Carne Asada Recipe. However, I marinate for 4-6 hours when I use those beef cuts.

The marinade is all about that nice fresh citrus flavor. And lots of cilantro. Can I get a whoopwhoop from my fellow cilantro lovers!?!?!

Carne asada can be gilled on the barbecue or stovetop. While I love the smoky flavor that the barbecue adds I prefer to cook mine on the stovetop to get it evenly cooked.

Once grilled, let that meat rest! It truly does make the meat juicier.

Then just slice against the grain and serve.

    This looks great, and I will make this soon. If you don’t want to use flatbread you can use large tortilla shells. My Sheltie’s will love the steak part of it,I cook for them..
