Carne Asada Recipe


Anyone ever CRAVE a good beef recipe! In my house, we sure do, especially since my husband doesn’t eat chicken! Yes, you read that right doesn’t eat chicken! Strange I know but after 13 years of marriage I’ve adjusted.

Both my husband and I grew up in Southern California and are LOVERS of good Mexican food. Besides ground beef tacos my husbands close second favorite Mexican main dish would have to be carne asada tacos. Years ago I created a recipe for carne asada using balsamic vinegar, chipotle Tabasco, brown sugar, salt, and pepper.

While, that recipe is good my husband wanted to try to come up with something more authentic. This recipe has a mixture of citrus juices, spices and sugar. The citrus juices help to break down the meat so the meat is more receptive to the spices that are used.
