I came up with my own version of the traditional Carne Asada Steak Marinade this weekend. I used the Mad Moose Mexican Seasoning for this. A full flavored marinade with just a little kick of heat really takes this one over the top. I even had the neighbors asking “What’s for dinner.”
Carne Asada Steak
2 lbs. Flank Steak
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeno finely minced
¼ C. chopped cilantro
2 T. lime juice
2 T. red wine vinegar
½ C. olive oil
2 T. Zesty Moose Mad Moose Mexican Seasoning
In a bowl, prepare marinade using above ingredients. Place flank steak in a shallow dish and pour liquid marinade over top. Place in refrigerator and marinade for 2 hours. Remove from refrigerator 30 min. before grilling.
Place on 400 degree grill and cook 7 minutes first side and 5 minutes second side. Grilling time will depend upon the thickness of the cut. Serve with grilled vegetables and wrap inside flour tortillas. Top with guacamole and sour cream.
1 red pepper sliced into strips
1 green pepper sliced into strips
1 yellow pepper sliced into strips
1 small red onion sliced into strips
Place vegetables on aluminum foil directly on the grill or use a grilling basket. Drizzle with olive oil and season with one of The Zesty Moose Finishing salts. Drizzle some of the Carne Asada marinade over top. Grill a long side of flank steak. Fill tortillas with steak strips and grilled vegetables.
