What is a Carne Asada Plate?

Carne asada, translated to “grilled meat” in Spanish, typically features marinated and thinly sliced beef, often skirt or flank steak, grilled to perfection and served with a variety of sides and accompaniments.

Marinade Perfect

This Mexican plate is centered around the marinade. The marinade infuses the meat in rich, zesty flavor, which results in a tender, juicy steak.
