Carne Asada Wet Burritos
Yesterday. First up… #confession ~ no recipe; I threw that right out the window. I was going to follow recipe below, but I happen to have GREAT carniceria all around me, so when I do grill authentic Mexican carne asada…I do authentic carne asada 😉
– from My Latina Table
However, I was not in the mood to stand over grill or stove this time, I just wanted to use the slow cooker; to have tender juicy yet bomb flavor…later. So it’s “loosely” adapted from that recipe, except that mine turned into “unauthentic” braised version. I marinated the beef first, similar seasoning. I seared beef in HOT cast iron skillet, put a couple tablespoons of oil in crockpot/slow cooker, put beef in, along with liquid leftover from marinade. Added a spoon of beef Better Than Bouillon, tomato paste and diced green chile. Cover and cook for 5 hours, depends on how high or low slow cooker is and size of beef. I used what was on sale…an offer I couldn’t refuse. Turned oven on 475°. Removed and sliced beef on a cutting board. Layered warm refried beans, meat and a little pico de gallo on each large flour tortilla, folded burritos, lined baking dish, poured remaining liquid from slow cooker over burritos, topped with cheese, heated in oven until cheese melted and started to brown.
My oranges on tree aren’t ripe yet; make it work…
This authentic Mexican carne asada recipe has an amazing flavor that will make it a staple at all of your summer cookouts for years to come.
whatever you want to call it…it tastes GREAT
