Low carb recipe for Carne Asada Steak which belongs to the Beef recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 2 pounds (910 g) boneless round steak or chuck, 1 to 2 inches (4 to 5
  2. cm) thick
  3. 2 teaspoons meat tenderizer
  4. cup (120 ml) red wine vinegar
  5. cup (60 ml) olive oil
  6. 2 tablespoons (30 ml) No-Sugar Ketchup
  7. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) soy sauce
  8. 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  9. 2 teaspoons ground or rubbed sage
  10. teaspoon salt
  11. 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  12. 1 teaspoon paprika
  13. 2 jalapenos, minced

Cooking Instructions

Sprinkle one side of the meat with 1 teaspoon of the tenderizer and pierce it all over with a fork.

Turn it over and treat the other side the same way with the second teaspoon of tenderizer.

Put the meat in a large resealable plastic bag or in a shallow, nonreactive pan.

Mix together everything else (wash your hands after handling those jalapenos!).

Reserve some marinade for basting and pour the rest over the meat.

If you're using a bag, press out the air, seal it, and turn it a few times to coat the meat; if you're using a pan, turn the meat over once or twice to coat.

Put the meat in the refrigerator and let it marinate for at least several hours?overnight is better?turning it now and then.

When dinnertime rolls around, start your grill and let your charcoal burn down to the well-ashed stage or set your gas grill to medium.

Grill your steak for about 10 minutes per side, basting frequently with the reserved marinade.

Use a clean utensil each time you baste.

If you'd like, you can put the leftover marinade in a microwavable bowl or in a saucepan and either microwave it until it's boiled for a minute or bring it to a boil on the stove and then serve it as a sauce.
