  1. Place all the liquid ingredients in a non metal bowl. Add the garlic powder 1 teaspoon at a time and mix in with a wire whisk to avoid lumps. Then add the oregano.

  2. Place the steak in a shallow glass dish that just fits the steak.

  3. Pour the marinade over the beef and cover with saran wrap. Place in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.

  4. or 4 is better.

  5. If you don't have Yoshidas sweet teriyaki sauce, try one of your own. Even regular soy sauce will work. I like a little sweetness to my recipe so you can add honey to the soy sauce if you like. A teaspoon or so should do it.

  6. Grill over medium high heat or pan fry the carne asada.

  7. to 6 minutes on each side should do the trick.

  8. If you decide to pan fry it, you will get the best results with a cast iron pan. Heat the pan on high so you can get a good sear on the meat.

  9. Let the meat rest a bit (5 minutes) before slicing. Heat up a few corn or flour tortillas and serve this carne asada recipe with homemade guacamole, salsa and sour cream and you are in for a treat.

  10. You can now make carne asada tacos, burritos and tortas or serve it by itself with a side of refried beans and spanish rice.
