      Rick Bayless always has a good answer.

      note: Carne Asada varies throughout Latin America and even within Mexico. It just means Grilled Meat (generally beef, but can be pork, and likely goat in some places). Can be very simply grilled and then adorned with any number of salsas or marinated in a wide variety of spices and chiles, then dressed with salsa before serving.

      the TLR is that there is no wrong way and no single authentic recipe.

        Yea what PKB said, there's dozens of versions of Carne Asada out there. I think HouseHomey had a pretty good one recently. Homes, calling all Homes !!!

        Not wanting to complicate things, but “carne” can be Beef in some parts, or Pork in other areas. I don’t have a problem with that, because I happen to like both.🤣

        I fixed it, Ricardo. You're right. I think, like barbacoa, it can be whatever meat is most prevalent in an area, so I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't some chivo being served as carne asada somewhere.

      You have good advice above - I made carne asada this weekend and just looked at a few different recipes, the one by Rick Bayless PKB mentions and then added a few spices that I like that were mentioned in a few other recipes. I used skirt steak, flank and flap meat would also be good. Then the type of salsa you would like, although I went simple and let the flavor of the marinade and meat stand out and just used sliced pasilla peppers and the charred onions.

      Have fun with this - i love making tacos and pairing salsas or board sauces with the meat! Makes me think of what’s next for this weekend and the Picanha I have waiting in the fridge

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      Placeholder

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
