Carne Asada marinade
Carne Asada marinade recipe will marinade 5-6 pounds of meat and can be easily halved or doubled. Hey Guys I have used the recipe for years. you can to marinate up to 24 hours (it's alright if it goes a bit longer or shorter) I like to go about 6-8hrs., then toss your beef on the grill for a truly amazing authentic flavor.
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar (can substitute with white vinegar)
1/3 cup lime juice (can substitute with lemon juice)
1/3 cup orange juice
1 1/4 cup water
2 1/2 tablespoons peeled fresh garlic - crushed
1 tablespoons white pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon Mexican oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 orange, sliced 1/4" thick
1/4 bunch cilantro, chopped (no stems)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
To use with beef, place beef in gallon sized freezer bag or in the bottom of a shallow baking dish.
Pour carne asada marinade on top of beef, cover dish or close bag, and marinate for at least 1 hour (more is better) don't go for more than 4-6hrs. before grilling
Now I like to lightly cook the meat, remember the marinade will cook the meat as it breaks it down the meat. thicker cuts of meat will take more time in the marinade.
