You should have tried some garlic and other herbs like thyme or something

Some season salt probably could have been a quick and dirty solution

Whats the name of the beef you guys buy? The closest thing i find out here is Flank Steak.
I also hear you can cook it in the broiler/stove...has anyone done that?

From someone who has marinated steak in beer and wine, i would not suggest itas the carne asada. I do not know an actual recipe for it, but i do not recommend it for a marinade, it DOESNTA make it soft and tender, and i have marinated for 6 hours. Of course i did not put it on the grill afterwards, but steak is different from a brskiet which is good when marinated with beer.

Skirt steak is best for fajitas, Asada i have seen for the most part beterr in Shoulder steak; BONE IN.

I have never made it myself, i have never even bought it pre-seasoned, but i have had friend buy it pre-seasoned.

Best thing to make it tender is Meat tenderizer. Now there are 2 different kinds i believe. One white one which i have found really good at tenderizing the meat and then there is one that is liek a orange type tenderizer, whic has alot more flavor then the white one, but i think the white one makes it more tender and soft.

As for seasoning, i suggest whatever you like to taste, i mean that is how i coook. I do test and some of my test come out bad, but i usualy add something to make it taste better.

I say this, try the white meat tenderizer, ass some salt and pepper, add some preprika, wtap and let sit for at least 8 hours. Now i can not try this this week, but i will try it next week.

This marinade works well for me:

Boneless Chuck, Chuck Steaks, 7 bone steak, etc...
1 Carta Blanca beer or Corona
about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of lime juice

Garlic Salt
Black Pepper


Mix the beer and lime juice in a plastic or glass bowl
Dip the meat in the mixture, one piece at a time
Take it out and give it a good dusting with Garlic Salt and Pepper on both sides
Put it in a Sealable bag and let it marinade in the fridge for a few hours or overnight if possible

Grill in a hot fire and you should have a good tasting Carne Asada

I like to eat it with corn tortillas, pico de gallo, cilantro, guacamole and grilled green onions

This is typical of the carne asadas cooked in the El Paso/Cuidad Juarez Area
