Carne Asada Skirt Steak on wooden cutting board

February 14, 2020

Foodie Friday: Carne Asada

When we plan these Gremaud Foodie Fridays, we always try to make sure we are keeping things fun and authentic to what we (Romain) really loves to cook. This is one of those dishes that he’s been cooking for years and it’s really one of our favorites. I know we say that every time, but I guess that’s why we are sharing these things with the world – because we love them! We hope you love them too! Carne Asada is a quick and easy dinner that can be dressed up or down and is always good in a taco or a salad if you’re looking for more options.

What you’ll need:

Skirt Steak – we used about a pound and a half (because we like to use leftovers for weekday salads)

Seasonings: Paprika, Coriander, Cumin, Salt & Pepper

Vegetable or Grape seed Oil

 

Do ahead: Salt your skirt steak 24 hours in advance and store in the fridge.

Start by roasting green onion and jalapeno slowly at 250 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. Season skirt steak with paprika, coriander, cumin and pepper, liberally on both sides of the meat.

Warm a cast iron pan over medium heat for 5 minutes.  Once the pan is warm turn the heat to high and pour in your oil.  Just before the oil is about to smoke place your steaks in the pan and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side.  The goal is to get a nice hard sear on both sides while maintaining a perfect medium rare on the inside.  Let steaks sit for 10 minutes before slicing across the grain.
