Carne Asada



6 servings


1/4 cup NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar Original
Zest of two limes
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

Carne Asada is often a very thin steak, seared quickly in a hot frying pan. For the grill, use steaks that are about 1/2-inch thick. In a small bowl, stir together all ingredients except steaks. Place steaks in a sealable gallon plastic bag. Pour marinade over meat; seal bag. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight; turn bag over at least once during marinating time. To cook, grill steaks over direct high heat until done as desired. Discard any remaining marinade.

Total preparation and cook time: 8-1/4 hours (includes 8-hour marinating time)
