My kids love to order Carne Asada from a famous local restaurant. They serve the steak medium over fresh hot corn tortillas. We asked the chef for his marinade recipe so we can make this at home during the week.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 to 3 lbs. skirt steak
  • 1 glass pyrex dish
  • 4 lemons
  • 4 limes
  • garlic salt / Garlic powder
  • 1 onion
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup

Video of the Day

Shop for all items on the grocery list. You can purchase Skirt Steak from your local supermarket or Butcher. Sometimes if I can't find Skirt Steak, Flat Meat is another good option. The package will look like there is a small piece of meat in it, but once you open it up, the meat will unfold into a large piece.

Place the meat in a glass Pyrex dish. Squeeze the juice of 4 limes and 4 lemons over the meat into the glass dish.

Shake a small amount of garlic salt and garlic powder on both sides of the meat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Cut the onion into small thin strips. set aside

take a small brush and squeeze 2 tbsp. ketchup over the top of the meat. Use a meat brush and brush the ketchup over the meat. Make sure to do both sides of the meat.

Let marinate over night if possible. If you don't have time for that, try to let it sit at least 2 hours.

BBQ the meat on both sides over hot flames for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until there are char marks.

Tips & Warnings

  • serve with hot tortillas, beans, pico de gallo, and guacamole.
