2 lbs Carne Asada Meat
½ onion – chopped
½ bunch cilantro – chopped
4 cloves garlic – crushed and minced
1 lime zested and juiced
¼ cup vinegar
½ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
½ cup olive oil
1 T liquid smoke

2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder

1.In a bowl, add all marinade ingredients and whisk to combine.  Put the chopped up meat into a gallon size ziplock bag and pour on the marinade. Refrigerate overnight.

2.remove the steak from the refrigerator and let meat come to room temperature while you heat your grill. Cook on a very hot grill 2-3 minutes per side, depending on  how you like it cooked. Let the meat rest, squeeze some fresh lime juice over the meat. Serve on either flour or corn tortillas and all your favorite toppings

*I got this meat recipe from bigmamashomekitchen its really good. There is some kick to it so if you dont like it real spicy I would leave out the cayenne pepper.
