Tender Carne Asada Recipe
This meat dish can be served with salsa and a side of rice. It can be also served with a side of fried or mashed potatoes, beans, rice, and tortillas. The choice is yours.
3 pounds beef tenderloin
5 to 6 fresh garlic cloves (peeled and crushed)
2 teaspoons black pepper
1/3 teaspoon ground cumin
1/3 cup olive oil
Compliment with homemade or store bought salsa
How to prepare
Rinse beef and dry off with clean kitchen towel. Slice the meat into slices about 1/4 inch thick. Next put the meat into a large plastic bag. In a large bowl sitr the remaining ingredients and pour over meat in bag. Close bag tightly and turn to coat all sides of meat. Refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours or beeter yet over night to allow seasonings to help tenderize the meat even more. At one hour before cook time, remove meat from the refrigerator to allow it to come to room temperature. Next preheat, preferably a large cast iron skillet on a high heat setting . Sear or grill meat for 2 to 4 minutes, turning meat once. Cook meat to your desired doneness. Serve immediately with salsa or other sides as mentioned.
