- 2 pounds Snake River Farms skirt or flank steak Buy Now
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Juice of 1 orange
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1 can of Mexican Beer
In a blender combine lemon juice, orange juice, garlic, black pepper, garlic salt, seasoned salt and half of the can of beer. Pulse the blender for about 10 seconds a few times until the garlic is completely liquefied. Pour the marinade in a 1-gallon zip then follow with the steak. Add the rest of the beer to the bag and then the onion.
Zip the bag up tight and marinade the Carne Asada in the fridge for four hours to overnight. Before cooking, remove the steak from the marinade, pat down well with paper towels.
4 - 24 hours
Preheat an indoor or outdoor grill to high for about 3-5 minutes. Use a grill brush to scrape the grill. Lightly oil the a few wadded up paper towels and carefully wipe the grill down.
Grill on high for about 2-3 minutes until you get a deep char, turn the steak a quarter turn and grill for an additional 2-3 minutes. Turn the steak over and grill until desired doneness. Three to five minutes for medium rare. Remove from heat and allow to rest loosely tented for about 5 minutes
When the steak is ready to serve, cut against the grain and serve.
