sprigs cilantro; for garnish only
1 dash cayenne pepper powder
Carne Asada
2 lb Flank steak
Mojo Marinade
3/4 Cup Goya Mojo (Criollo) Marinade

Preparation

Make Mojo Marinade in a large ziplock bag. Add all ingredients to bag and mix. Place flank steak in marinade bag and seal. Marinade for (at least) 30 minutes on counter top, turning the bag frequently to ensure the marinade evenly covers the meat.

Preheat covered grill at high temperature. Place marinated flank steak on the top rack or at least 6-8 inches from high heat source. Cover grill. Check every few minutes until the blood starts to run out the top of the steak. Flip and grill covered until charred on the edges and still slightly thick and tender in middle.

Remove from grill and let sit for 5 minutes uncovered. Slice thin (against the grain) add a cilantro garnish, and serve with hot tortillas and pico de gallo.

Notes:

Do not overcook. Juices will sit on top of the steak and that's perfect. Meat will be slightly red in the thickest center. It is better to slice and throw on a hot griddle before serving than to overcook on the grill. Slice against the grain only or it will make the meat tough to chew. Can substitute Skirt Steak or flapmeat but since they're super tough meats, you'll need to Marinate overnight and make sure to slice properly; thin and against the grain.
