My best friend in Chiapas sells carne asada from her living room every night. I have helped her prepare it many times. Easy and delicious.
2.2 lbs. thinly sliced lean beef
1 small bottle Worchestershire sauce
14 limes (sqeeze juice onto the
meat,and toss in the rinds as well)
2 T. cooking oil
1 medium white onion, sliced
4 large garlic cloves, smashed & peeled
salt to taste (I use about 1 tsp.)
Allow the meat to marinate at room temperature for at least 6 hours, turning it about once an hour so that all the pieces are well-coated. Shake off all the marinade and discard. Grill meat for a few minutes on each side over a hot charcoal fire until brown and well done. The end result should be rather chewy but very tasty. Her faithful customers tear them apart with their fingers and roll the meat into warm corn tortillas, along with refried beans, a side salad, crumbled queso, and homemade salsa roja. ¡Buen provecho!
