Carne asada
4 (8-oz.) flank steaks
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 limes (1 juiced and 1 cut into wedges)

Grilled vegetables
2 red bell peppers, quartered
1 yellow onion, cut into extra-thick slices
1 tsp. canola oil
Kosher salt, to taste


For carne asada: Combine oil, seasonings, garlic, Worcestershire sauce and lime juice in a large mixing bowl and whisk to create A marinade. Add steaks and coat evenly with marinade. Let marinate for at least 20 minutes or, if time permits, overnight.

On a heated grill or grill plate, cook steaks for 3 or 4 minutes or until seared with grill marks. Flip steaks and cook to desired temperature, approximately 3 minutes for medium rare. Remove steaks from grill and let rest. Slice steaks against the grain. Serve with grilled vegetables, corn tortillas, guacamole, salsa and a lime wedge.

For grilled vegetables: Toss vegetables in oil, sprinkle with salt and grill over medium heat until tender.
