Better Than Chipotle Carne Asada
Chipotle carne asada isn’t available anymore but that’s okay! Make this recipe for a perfectly tender, juicy Mexican steak that tastes better than the restaurant's version!
Marinate the steak in light beer for 4 hours, covered, in the refrigerator.
Meanwhile, make the carne asada marinade and refrigerate until ready to use.
After marinating the steak in beer, drain the beer and pour carne asada marinade over steak, turning to coat all over. Return to refrigerator, covered, to marinate for 3 hours.
Start your grill. Use the highest heat possible. The grill should be smoking, blistering, searingly hot. Grill marinated steak as follows: For skirt steak, 3 minutes per side. For flank steak, 5 minutes per side. NOTE: Cook time depends on steak thickness and desired doneness. Remove cooked meat from heat, and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
While meat is resting, grill the tortillas on each side until slightly charred. Slice carne asada steak thinly across the grain.
