Carne Asada Marinade

Yield: 4 Servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

1/4 cup orange juice

2.5 tablespoons lemon juice

1.5 tablespoon lime juice

2 cloves garlic, minced

2.5 tablespoons soy sauce

1/4 teaspoon finely chopped canned chipotle pepper

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon black pepper

2.5 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound flank steak

How to Make It

  1. Combine the orange, lemon, and lime juice in a large bowl along with the garlic, soy sauce, chipotle pepper, chili power, ground cumin, paprika, dried oregano, black pepper, and cilantro. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until marinade is well combined.
  2. Place the flank steak between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the steak with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/4 inch. After pounding, poke steak all over with a fork. Add the meat to the marinade in the large bowl, cover, and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Remove the steak from the marinade and grill to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium rare. Discard used marinade. Remove meat from heat and slice across the grain.
