Thanks to these forums I decided to try some Carne Asada. Living just outside of Chicago I have access to lots of great ethnic food stores. Found a great one near my work and decided to hit it. First off Im 100% Italian so my spanish is so so. Picked up 2lbs of skirt steak and the butcher sliced thin pieces and tenderized it for me. Costed me about $8 for the meat. Picked up some Mojo Criollo marinade and some carne asada rub. Also grabbed some fresh cheese, green onions and cilantro.

Heres the meat bathing in goodness.

Grilling up the meat made my mouth water right away.

I think I might of put just a little too much rub but I really didnt mind it. The marinade is a must and I think Im going to try it on some chicken. Overall I really enjoyed it. No different than the local mexican resteraunts which is a very good thing.

Those look awesome! I like the tip about having the butcher slice them for you, will do that next time.

May I ask what kind of cheese did you use? Queso Fresco?

Very nice indeed! One aside: You mentioned the meat was flank steak - that sure looks like skirt steak to me.

The butcher also put the sliced pieces in a machine that tenderized them as well. Not sure if that is standard in most Ethnic foodstores but the meat was amazing. Queso Fresco is the cheese I used too.

I like the fact you left the tomato in big wedges too instead of diced. I'll have to do that.
