Carne'Asada is a popular Mexican marinated beef dish, thinly sliced very thinly as a filling for tortillas, or served on its own with refried beans on the side.
  • 1kg Skirt, flank or rump tail steak
For the Marinade
  • 4 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Jalapeno chilli, seeded and minced
  • 1 Tsp ground cumin
  • 1 Generous handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2 Tbs White wine vinegar
  • ½ Tsp Sugar
  • ½ Cup Oil
  1. Place the beef in a roasting pan or a large shallow tray.
  2. In a jug, combine the minced garlic, jalapeno chilli, ground cumin, fresh coriander, salt and pepper, lime juice, white wine vinegar, sugar and oil.
  3. Mix this until the oil has emulsified, then spoon the marinade evenly over the steak.
  4. Allow this to marinate in your refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.
  5. Heat your a ribbed skillet on your barbecue or range over medium high heat.
  6. Place the meat with the fat side down and cook it for 8 minutes.
  7. Turn the steak over and cook it for a further 8 minutes. This timing will give you a medium rare result, so you can adjust the times according to your personal preference.
  8. Remove the steak from the skillet and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into very thin slices and serving.
