Bites and Pieces. Cinco De Mayo edition

I don’t know if I shared my carne asada recipe, but I just did it for everyone tonight, and it is a perfect summer grilling dish.  I always kick off the camping season by doing this over a campfire.

1.5 lb skirt steak


1 white onion diced

3 fresh jalapenos

1 bunch cilantro

1 jar minced garlic

1 plastic lime of lime juice

1 tb salt

2 tb oilive oil.


2 tomatoes, diced

1/2 white onion, diced

1 tsp minced garlic

1 fresh jalapeno, with seeds and membrane removed

fresh cilantro.

Put marinade ingredients in a food processor and mince.  Marinade skirt steak for 3 hours.

Assemble salsa. Cut and mix

Grill skirt steak.  Cut to 2-inch strips against the grain.

Grill flour tortillas briefly to warm up.

Serve with beer, grated cheese, salsa, guacamole, and cholula sauce.

  3. Oh, wow!

    The house I’m renting right now has a fire ring in the back yard (HUGE back yard–main reason I chose it) and I’m going to have to throw a party and try this cooked over the fire. Maybe a Memorial Day weekend pre-party. . . 🙂 Thanks, Brent!


  4. Brent, hope you don’t mind, but I have shared this recipe with my niece. We have a huge upcoming bbq/grilling/smoking party to celebrate her son’s wedding, and she plans to include this.


  5. @okie, sure go ahead. I once fed 30 people with this recipe and it worked pretty well.
