Carne Asada

Good steak is a once-in-a-while treat. If you're going to go for it, this recipe from damndelicious is amazingly delicious. A good choice for a dinner party...if you happen to have non vegetarians or vegans all in one place!


1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 cup tamari

Juice of 1 orange

Juice and zest of 1 lime

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 jalapeño, seeded and diced

1 teaspoon ground cumin

Sea salt and fresh pepper to taste

1 1/2 pounds flank steak


  1. In a medium bowl, combine cilantro, olive oil, soy sauce, orange juice, lime juice, garlic, jalapeno, cumin and 1 teaspoon pepper; set aside 1/2 cup of the mixture in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  2. In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine steak and remaining cilantro mixture; marinate for at least 4 hours to overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Drain the steak from the marinade.
  3. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Remove meat from marinade and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Add steak to grill, and cook, flipping once, until desired doneness, about 6 minutes per side for medium rare. Let rest 5 minutes.
  5. Thinly slice steak against the grain and serve with reserved 1/2 cup cilantro mixture.
