Carne Asada Marinade

Monday, June 18, 2018

One of our favorite foods to eat on busy nights is tacos. We make a lot of ground beef, chicken, fish and shrimp tacos. My favorite are carne asada tacos. This marinade gives the meat a garlic citrus note that is so flavorful. You will want to plan ahead for this recipe. The meat has to marinate for 48 hours. To make the carne asada, just take the meat out of the marinade and grill to your desired doneness. We like ours  medium. Then you slice it very thinly and chop the strips into tiny pieces. The best taco meat! Serve on warm corn tortillas with cilantro and onion .
