How to Make Carne Asada

Your carne asada can be ultra tender, with a secret ingredient that works for almost any cut of beef you want to grill. We’re sharing our tips on how to make supremely flavorful, tender, juicy carne asada right at home.


Skirt or flank steak

Soy sauce


Lime juice

Olive or canola oil


Ground cumin

Ancho chili powder

Optional toppings: Pico De Gallo, avocado, lime & cilantro

Kiwi fruits


Add soy sauce, garlic, lime juice, oil, sugar, cumin, onion powder, and chili powder to a dish and whisk. Dry the beef, poke holes & place in the marinade. Chill 3-9 hours.

Marinade & Grill 

During the last 30 minutes of marinade time, evenly press mashed kiwi onto all sides of beef. Grill steak just until browned, and interior is medium rare.

Slice & Serve

Transfer steak to cutting board and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Then, slice very thinly against the grain and serve immediately with your choice of toppings.
