  • 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.


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

  1. Combine the lime juice, avocado oil, cider vinegar, garlic, cumin, oregano, cilantro, cayenne, black pepper, and salt in a bowl or gallon-sized plastic bag.
  2. Mix well and add the steak to the marinade, turning to coat thoroughly.
  3. Seal the bag or bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight for the best flavor. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes prior to cooking.
