Make this juicy, Citrus Marinated Carne Asada the next time you are craving Mexican for amazing tacos, burritos, salads, and more.
I am taco obsessed these days and my husband and I constantly are searching for the best tacos in Los Angeles. And there are lots! One of our tests of a good taco shop is always the salsa, but another is the carne asada. As such a staple on any taco menu, it should be an item that is delicious every time. Recently we tried some amazing citrus marinated carne asada tacos and I have been dreaming of recreating them ever since. Marinated with orange juice, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and jalapeno - the meat has a ton of flavor. Make up a big batch for tacos, burrito bowls, salads, or as a main dish and you are guaranteed on delicious dinner.

Mix together the lime juice, orange juice, garlic, cilantro, jalapeno, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Marinate the steak in this mixture for at least 2-8 hours in the fridge. Don't marinate for over 8 hours or the meat will become mushy.
When ready to grill, preheat the grill over medium heat. Cook the steak for 6-8 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Let rest for 5 minutes and then slice thinly. (You could also broil this if you don't have a grill.)
