  • Combine marinade ingredients in large plastic food storage bag. Add steak; seal bag. Massage bag to coat steak. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Chefs Notes:
Super good. I used some thin flank steak and the carne asada was wonderful. Felt it could have used more, maybe some avacado and cilantro which I didn’t have at the time.
