I got this carne asada recipe from my friend’s mother in Phoenix. This recipe will marinate 5-6 pounds of meat and can be halved or doubled. Serve this with flour tortillas and salsa.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 5 pounds beef skirt steak, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • ⅓ cup lime juice
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried Mexican oregano
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place beef in a large resealable plastic bag.
  2. 2 Combine water, orange slices, orange juice, lime juice, vinegar, lime slices, cilantro, oil, salt, garlic, white pepper, black pepper, oregano, cumin, chili powder, and cloves in a large bowl. Whisk to combine. Pour marinade on top of the beef and seal the bag.
  3. 3 Marinate beef in the refrigerator, 2 hours to overnight.
  4. 4 Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill beef over direct heat until firm and slightly pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) for medium.
