So for my first official battle, I decided to go with a classic Carne Asada dish. I went to The Lazy Brother’s Neighborhood Market to get my meat. I marinated the meat with some green onions, lemons, limes, and of course beer (specifically a Belgian-Style India Pale Ale from Flying Dog.) Let it soak up the goodness for about 2 hours and fired up the grill in the meantime.
On the grill, I added some Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce and a touch of Famous Dave’s Steak Seasoning. I let the meat cook for about 9 mins for each side and threw on some green onions to cook with it.
I used La Tortilla Factory corn tortillas with fresh cut cilantro, red, orange, and yellow peppers and a few slices of avocado and lime to top it off. Included some mango salsa with blue corn chips and an ice cold Dos XX to wash it down!
