You’ll need a charcoal grill to prepare an Authentic Carne Asada Recipe
Prepare the grill
1Put the charcoal inside the grill and light it up. Use the guide in our tips section to light up your charcoal correctly.
2Once most of charcoal pieces are red hot, spread it across your grill, and put the grid on top of it. Wait 5-10 minutes approximately so the grill heats up correctly.
3Use half an onion to clean the grill. Slide the onion across all the grill bars. Use a long piece of cutlery to do this, so you don’t burn your hand.
1Once the grill is hot and clean, it is time to throw in the tomatoes, peppers and the other half onion.
2Keep flipping the tomatoes, peppers and onion until they are browned.
3Once they are browned, take them away from the grill and peel them. You can use a blender to grind them and mix them, but it is best to use a mortar.
4Add salt to taste.
1Now you can throw in your steaks.
2Give a few minutes to each side of your steaks. You should flip the steak only once per side, and only when the juice of the steak is running out of it.
3After flipping each steak twice (and getting the doneness of your choice), remove the steaks from the grill. You can cut your steaks into fajitas, but that is an optional step.
4Heat up some tortillas to accompany your carne asada.
