The Best Carne Asada Recipe
Ingredients:

  • 3 whole dried ancho chiles, stems and seeds removed
  • 3 whole dried guajillo chiles, stems and seeds removed
  • 2 whole chipotle peppers, canned in adobo
  • 3/4 cup fresh juice from 2 to 3 oranges, preferably sour oranges
  • 2 tablespoons fresh juice from 2 to 3 limes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce, such as Red Boat
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, leaves and tender stems only, divided
  • 6 medium cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon whole cumin seeds, toasted and ground
  • 1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds, toasted and ground
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 pounds skirt steak, trimmed and cut with the grain into 5- to 6-inch lengths
  • Warm corn or flour tortillas, lime wedges, diced onion, fresh cilantro, and avocado, for serving
Directions:
  1. Microwave dried ancho and guajillo chiles until pliable and toasty-smelling, then transfer to a blender. Add chipotle peppers, orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, soy sauce, fish sauce, brown sugar, cilantro, garlic, cumin seed, and coriander seed. Blend until smooth, then season with salt. Divide the salsa in half, reserving one half in the refrigerator.
  2. Season the remaining salsa with extra salt. Coat steak pieces with the salsa in a bowl, then transfer to a zipper-lock bag. Pour any excess marinade over the steaks, seal the bag, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 12 hours.
  3. Preheat grill. Remove extra salsa from the fridge. Cook steaks over hot grill until well-charred on the outside and center reaches 110°F (43°C) on an instant-read thermometer, about 5 to 10 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes, then slice thinly against the grain and serve with reserved salsa, lime wedges, avocado, onions, cilantro, and tortillas.
