HOW TO COOK ARRACHERA

  • First of all, you need to tenderize the arrachera or skirt steak so you can have a tender and juice carne asada. Here is an easy and natural way to tenderize any kind of beef. Marinade the arrachera for at least 20 minutes. If you have time leave it in the fridge overnight for a delicious arrachera Mexican marinade flavor. When the briquets or the coal are turning a little white color place the arrachera on the grill. Sometimes arrachera can be a very long steak so there is no problem if you cut it in a few pieces in order to fit it on your grill. If the arrachera cut is not that thick it might take about 6 minutes on each side to achieve a medium-well term. My secret for the perfect grilled arrachera is to flip it over when I see some accumulated blood on top. That is a sign that the under part is already cook and is time to flip it.

ARRACHERA TACOS

  • Once you have achieved your meat doneness place it in a cutting board and cut pieces along the beef strips. Arrachera tacos are usually beef pieces cutted in strips not squares following the beef pattern.
  • Place your beef inside a warm tortilla and add some salsa or guacamole on top.
