Carne Asada Tacos

The Latin American term Carne Asada literally means ‘grilled beef’ and is a dish composed of thin steaks marinated in lime juices, spices, and cider vinegar, then grilled over high heat. Carne Asada is usually served in tacos, burritos, quesadillas, with a salad and french fries – or just served on its own with rice and beans.

  • 1.Combine all of the steak ingredients together and marinate the beef steak for up to 4 hours.
  • 2.Combine the taco dip dressing ingredients together. Taste and adjust to your liking if needed.
  • 3.Grill the steak on a hot barbecue or under the grill for approx 5-6 minutes on each side. For medium rare, you’re looking for an internal temperature of 58º – 60ºC.
  • 4.Remove the steak but heat and let it rest for 5–10 minutes before slicing.
  • 5.While the steak rests, warm your tortillas in a frying pan for about 15–20 seconds per side.
  • 6.To serve, cut the steak into 2cm slices. Spread a bit of taco dip on the tortilla, add fresh salad and vegetables then top with steak. For a serving suggestion try with lime on the side, french fries topped with smashed avacado, salsa and fresh coriander. Enjoy!
