Carne Asada is an all time Mexican favorite. It's great as a steak or chopped up for tacos.


skirt steak 3 lbs
orange 3 sliced in half
onion 1 sliced thin
garlic powder 3 Tbsps
seasoned salt 2 Tbsps
pepper 1 tsp
oregano (dried) 2 Tbsps
vegetable oil 1/2 cup


  1. Combine the garlic powder, seasoned salt, pepper, and oregano. Combine thoroughly.
  2. In a baking dish spread out a layer of the onions.
  3. Place a piece of the meat over the onions.
  4. Squeeze 1/2 an orange over the meat.
  5. Sprinkle the seasoning to taste over the meat.
  6. Repeat the process with the remaining pieces of meat and continue to create a stack of meat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  7. Heat a frying pan over high heat with a 1/2 teaspoon of oil and fry the pieces of meat for about 3 minutes on each side until done. Repeat the process with the remaining pieces of meat.
