If I could only eat one cuisine for the rest of my life, it would be Mexican, hands down. I love corn tortillas, the array of sauces, the smoky, spicy peppers. One of my favorite things about Mexican food is how flavorful the meats are. The recipe below is proof of this.
Slow cooked carne asada. What's special about the recipe below? It requires just 10 minutes of prep and 6 ingredients outside of the steak itself. You are able to make the best use of slow cooking and get one of the most robust flavors out of it.
