Gluten Free Carne Asada:
From Simply Recipes
2-3 pounds of carne asada meat
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2-1 jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and minced
1 teaspoon freshly ground cumin seed
1 large handful fresh cilantro, leaves and stems, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
Start by lightly toasting cumin seeds until fragrant. Grind the cooled seeds into a powder. You could also use powered cumin if you don't have whole seeds.
Next, in a large bowl, combine the rest of the marinade ingredients.
Add the carne asada meat to the bowl and thoroughly coat each piece with marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4-5 hours.
Preheat your BBQ to 375-400 degrees f. Cook each slice of carne asada for 2-3 minutes per side. Carne asada is very thin so be careful not to overcook it and turn it into shoe leather.
Let the meat rest for about 2 minutes and then slice it across the grain. Because the meat is so thin it cools down very fast. So, after slicing the meat, I threw it in a pan on the stove top to reheat. I also sauteed some bell peppers and onions to go with my carne asada.
Wrap it all up in a warm corn tortilla with some fresh salsa verde and sour cream and you have just created a little Mexican masterpiece. Enjoy!!!
