Carne Asada – Mexican Cooking

Carne Asada – Mexican Cooking


Hola, so, you guys I am attempting to make this marinade for carne asada. Carne asada is Mexican fancy word for sliced steaks. It’s my mother-in-law’s recipe. I love her carne asada. I can’t grill and I can’t bake but I can cook, not some fancy chef that decorate their food. I am just a cook, I make food not play with them. No offense to the chefs out there.

Carne Asad


  • 3 lbs flank steak
  • 4 limes
  • 2 large garlic cloves (4 if they are small)
  • One white onion
  • Chopped Cilantro
  • 1 TBSP sea salt
  • 1 TBSP garlic salt
  • 1 TSP of black pepper


In the blender or mixing bowl squeeze, the 4 limes into the bowl then add all the dry ingredients, mix well. (When using a blender after mixture pour sauce into a bowl) add the flank steak and mix well. Finally, add the sliced white onion and chopped cilantro fold the meat several times for mixture.

Once the flank steak is marinated you can fry it. Put the meat in a saucepan. For best results use the grill.

Frying carne asada

Marinate overnight for best results. If you’re in a hurry 30 minutes is sufficed.

Next is the salsa, spicy for some mild for me.


This is my sister-in-law’s recipe as you will get to know it’s pretty spicy.

Salsa (party servings) for family servings do half or like this and save it in storage container. Refrigerator for future meals


  • 5 roma tomatoes
  • 13 serrano chili peppers
  • Half of white onion
  • Cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt or to taste



For the sauce boil the serrano chili peppers until cooked (10 minutes) after that add the 5 roma tomatoes until the tomatoes starts to peel itself. Turned off the stove and drained all the serrano chili peppers and roma tomatoes into a colander.

Warning the serrano chili peppers and the roma tomatoes will be hot. Wait until warm to touch. Finished peeling the roma tomatoes. In a blender puree it or chopped all the ingredients together. Pour it in a container for later use or in a bowl for immediate consumption.

There you go Mexican cooking from my in-laws. Enjoy! Grascias.
