CARNE ASADA FRIES RECIPE
- 1 flank steak, 2 lb
- French fries
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1⁄3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 1⁄2 cup Mexican beer (Corona, Modelo, etc.)
- Zest of 1 lime
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1⁄4 tsp ground chipotle chili
- 1⁄2 tsp salt
To make the marinade, put the garlic in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the cilantro and pulse a few times, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend together.
Put the steak in a Ziploc bag and pour in the marinade. Massage the steak in the bag for about a minute before putting the bag in the refrigerator for at least four hours. You can allow it to sit for up to 24 hours.
Once the steak is marinated, grill it over medium-high heat until medium rare.
Slice steak, place on top of fries and add cheese. Heat it on the grill for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.
