Happy Cinco de Mayo! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with this marinated United Harvest outside skirt steak aka carne asada. The meat was so incredibly juicy and flavorful. I honestly lost count of how many pieces I ate while cutting the meat. The carne asada is delicious on its own alongside rice and beans, or you can add it to a charred corn tortilla with cilantro and onion. Either way, it’s sure to be a winner!

Happy Taco Tuesday! This is a bold statement, but I have to admit that these are some of the best carne asada tacos I’ve ever tasted. The marinade for the meat was divine–I would have been content eating the carne asada alone. I recommend going light on the smoky dried-chili salsa, as it’s pretty dang spicy. But since I have a cold right now, I didn’t mind so much, as it cleared up my sinuses!

ole! ole! [succulent carne asada w. Mexican rice & grilled red pepper & onion]

I visited my family this past weekend and conveniently when I got home and hadn’t eaten lunch, my mom had plentiful amounts of delicious leftovers to serve. She bought carne asada from Albertson’s and I was extremely surprised by the abundance of flavor and tenderness of the meat. The carne asada was delectable alongside homemade Mexican rice.

When I got back to LA, I decided to buy some of this pre-marinated, thinly cut carne asada as well (from Ralph’s). Not only was the meat a great deal, but it was juicy and full of flavor, with a distinct taste of cumin. I paired the meat with the same Mexican rice my mom made and some grilled red pepper and red onion. Since all three components of the meal were so flavorful on their own, added calories such as cheese and sour cream were not necessary.

Happy early Cinco de Mayo!
