Burrito carne asada can be served as a main dish or as an ingredient in other dishes (see below). Carne asada is often served with fresh guacamole, grilled onions, black beans or frijoles charros, rice, tortillas and fresh salsa.
2 pounds beef, skirt (any fajita style cut of meat) or 2 pounds flank steaks (any fajita style cut of meat)
1 onion, small
1 lemon, juiced
1 lime, juiced
2 pounds cooked Bean
2 pounds cooked Rice
6 Tortilla Flour Large
Wash and clean all ingredients.
Lay the meat out flat and season liberally with salt and pepper. Cut meat into 1/4 inch pieces. Place meat in a zip lock bag and add fine diced onions and lemon/lime juices. Mix well and refrigerate for at least 30 min., up to 24 hours.
Warm the tortillas in a microwave under a wet paper towel, one at a time. (about 20-30 sec.) Or wrap tortillas in foil and place in the oven at 350 for 10-15 minute.
You want them warm and pliable for wrapping.
On high heat add a teaspoon of oil to a medium sized skillet. ( I prefer cast iron).
When oil begins to smoke add 1/4 to 1/3 pound of carne asada meat and onions. Sear the meat until brown on both sides. Place the meat and onions in the center of a warm tortilla.
Add pico de gallo, guacamole, (and french fries and/or cheeses if desired) and fold in the sides to form a burrito. Serve hot.
