Carne asada is ridiculously easy to make and incredibly flavorful! This recipe can also easily be adapted to fit your particular diet (see modifications). We like to use homemade Brown Rice Flour Tortillas for serving, however, for a paleo or grain-free version, use homemade Cassava Tortillas. I use blood oranges for the marinade, but you can substitute regular oranges if needed. Serve the carne asada with your favorite toppings and enjoy! In fact, you may want to make a double batch of the meat and marinade and save it for another day. The grilled meat is delicious on top of a green salad for lunch, or served with eggs and avocado for a high-protein breakfast.
