Barbecued Carne Asada

The secret to this recipe is in the marinade!





  1. To make the marinade, in a medium bowl whisk together all marinade ingredients. Place steak in a resealable plastic bag set into a shallow dish. Pour marinade over steak; close bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally to distribute marinade.
  2. Meanwhile, cut an 18-inch square of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place peppers and sliced onion in center of foil. Dot with butter. Bring up 2 opposite edges of foil and, leaving a little space for expansion of steam, tightly seal top, then each end.
  3. Remove steak from marinade, reserving marinade. Place steak in center of cooking grate. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes for rare or 15 to 19 minutes for medium, turning and brushing with reserved marinade once halfway through grilling time. Place foil packet of vegetables on the cooking grate beside steak during the last 10 minutes of grilling time.
  4. Wrap tortillas in heavy-duty aluminum foil; place on cooking grate beside steak during the last 5 minutes of grilling time. Turn tortilla packet once halfway through grilling.
  5. Slice steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
  6. Serve in tortillas with peppers and onions, salsa, and guacamole.

Makes 6 servings.
