Carne Asada from tonight, with home-made salsa verde!
Here’s the Carne asada marinade recipe as best as I can remember it:
- ~2 cups orange juice
- ~1/2 cup lime juice
- about 1 1/2 tbsp each cumin, coriander, oregano, thyme, basil and achiote (ground annatto seed)
- 1/2c chopped cilantro
- 1 dried ancho chile, cut into strips
- salt and black pepper
The flank steak was marinated for two days, then quickly grilled.
- 1 1/2 lb fresh tomatillos
- 4 serrano chiles
- 1/2 onion
- some cilantro
- a glug of lime juice
Broil the tomatillos and chiles on a cookie sheet until lightly charred, then skin the chiles and place everything into a blender and blend. Super easy!
