Carne Asada & KETO Chimichurri Sauce

When we spark up the BBQ at Konscious Keto, the smiles go all around! You'll be smiling too after you taste these juicy skirt steaks.

Enjoy these on their own or with a side salad or our loaded radishes. We love to add the leftover steak to breakfast omelets (but be warned, there's hardly ever any leftovers when we make this!). 

Carne asada is a fantastic keto dish as it has the right keto macros to help you stay in ketosis. Plus it tastes delicious and is super simple to make. You're gonna love this one, we promise. 

Carne Asada & KETO Chimichurri Sauce

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Preparation:

  • You will need an indoor or gas grill heated to 450˚F when you're ready to cook the steak.
  • You will need a blender or food processor to make the sauce.

Ingredients:

For the Carne Asada:

  • 1 lb flank or skirt steak
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
