Salsa Verde Carne Asada

Tacos! Tacos! Tacos! If I had to live with three things for the rest of my life… This would be at least two of them. Super easy, the only thing I didn’t do is marinate my beef, which would make this dish so much better!

Carne Asada:

Look I couldn’t find any skirt steak, so we went with a top round. Now don’t go all getting mad because I used this. It was so delicious. Since it was thin, I only seared each side for maybe a max of 1-2 minutes. Nothing more. I let it come to a complete rest for 10 minutes. Don’t even begin to think about touching it during this time.

I seared it like I cook any other steak, in my cast iron. I started off with getting the pan ripping hot, adding a little oil & then seasoning the steak after it hits the pan. Allow for searing on both sides, and after about half way through the other side, add a tablespoon of butter for extra fat flavor. I season well with salt and pepper maybe adding a bit of lime juice towards the end as well. Cut into bite sized cubes.

Salsa verde:

  • 6-7 tomatillos – husks removed
  • 1 smaller bunch of cilantro
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, skins removed
  • juice of 1 whole lime
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin (if desired, I love cumin)
  • salt & pepper to taste(I added 2 teaspoons for each)
  • 1-2 Jalapenos
  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  1. remove husk of tomatillos, wash those along with cilantro & jalapenos. I blackened my jalapenos over my gas stove, you don’t have to do that, but it does add more flavor. (or grill them) Throw the jalapenos and tomatillos into a pan with the oil into a preheated 350 degrees oven for 15-20 minutes or until softened.
  2. Add everything else into the blender, halving or roughly chopping everything so your blender isn’t working so hard. wait to salt/pepper.
  3. when tomatillos/jalapenos are done, add into the blender, blend until it looks like salsa, mine literally took 10 seconds. salt/pepper and taste, if it taste sour, add a bit more salt and it will taste better.

Like I said, the salsa verde sauce isn’t too hot and doesn’t take very long to make. It’s easy because the blender does the work for you. I recommend taking half of the salsa verde and marinate your steak for at least 30 minutes or more for max flavor.

I hope everybody is staying safe and healthy!
