Carne Asada TacosJump to Recipe
Have you heard people say, let’s do some barbecuing? Well, for us Hispanics, it’s called carne asada. The dish is called carne asada, the gathering is called carne asada, its all about grilled meat and having a great time.
Marinading the meat is always a plus. Of course, you always have the option to buy it already seasoned but it doesn’t compare. Im always stoked about sharing a marinade for carne asada. Because, it really does make the occasion that much enjoyable. Plus, everyone will be talking about, how flavorful the meat turned out.
Here are a few cuts that work great when marinated
- Flap meat
- Skirt steak
- Flank steak
Sides, salsas and more
- Mexican Salsa – There are so many options to choose from. Typically blended salsas are paired with tacos but if you have the time, molcajete ones are also a strong contender.
- Cactus salad – Cactus salad is a classic. Growing up in Mexico I can assure you, it does not get more authentic than making a dish with cactus. And, this type of salad is packed with flavor, paired with amazing ingredients.
- Cooked beans – Yeap! It’s as simple as cooking the beans with a few aromatics until tender. In this video, I share the process of making refried beans but also, explain the process of cooking them. You can skip the refrying part, and transfer them straight out of the pot, onto the taco. Guadalajara specifically is known for serving tacos like this, so delicious!
- Chopped onion and diced cilantro – honestly, Ive never seen or had a taco without these two ingredients. They are must.
