Default Carne asada?

How long and what temp should I cook this at? The (pregnant) wife wants some.....TODAY!

Thin slices, I'm thinking 325 for 10 minutes on the Traeger, maybe? Open to suggestions.

I marinate them in a blend of spices and liquids, then quickly cook them over the hottest fire I can get going. If I can get the real thin cuts they sell at the Mexican butcher, it can be as little as a couple minutes per side. I really like to see a very hot grill and some charring.

Marinade I use:
1/4 cup lime juice, fresh squeezed
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3 garlic cloves grated
1 teaspoon chile powder
1 Tablespoon Lucky Dog Hot Sauce
1 Tablespoon BBQ rub
1 teaspoon kosher salt and black pepper

We just throw it on in strips. It's really thin beef. We don't shred it, just leave it in thin sheets.

The berries usually ripen in late July. We have fields of blackberries behind my house. :)

I agree, hot and fast. I use a skirt steak if I can get it. I usually like a long marinade (8+ hours, similar to what Landarc is talking) but it sounds like you may not have that option. It's only 2:20 there... get it in the marinade ASAP.

Lots of marinade recipes out there for asada. Mine usually has beer, wooster, hot sauce, garlic and onion powder, and maybe a floating habanero. Once it hits the hot grill, it's a couple minutes per side, (mine are on for about 1 minute per side) then hit em with some fresh lime before taking off. Warm corm torts, grilled long green onions, and a good salsa...............COLD BEER, then eat. Salt and pepper before making the flip.

DO NOT MAKE A PREGNANT WOMAN WAIT FOR FOOD!!!! Learned that one Real quick!!

Here's what I do:

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=71883

Comes out great every time!

For marinade:

Orange Juice
Onions
Cilantro
Seasoning Salt and BBQ Rub of your choice

Layer meat in pan and coat with all ingredients. Let marinate at least overnight, if not longer.

Weber, HOT mesquite, tortillas, salsa and ice cold beer, not for her she’s pregnant.

Get that grill hot toss the meat on for a minute or two then flip toss tortillas on grill with meat. Pull off tortillas and slap a nice n hot piece of carne on it topped with salsa and kick back and enjoy life.
