  1. April is even better than any of the summer months in So. Cal. May Gray and June Gloom make early summer drab. Santa Anna makes July and August sexy, but stressful. September is hot! But October thru April is sheer heaven. GREG

  2. I’m so jealous of your weather in San Diego, my favorite place to vacation! I don’t eat red meat too often, but carne asada is one way I truly enjoy it! Such a great recipe, I’ll be giving this one a try!

  3. This picture IS summer to me. So many great memories associated with backyard carne asada. Can’t wait to try. Have you ever made homemade corn tortillas before? They’re really easy! I did it for the first time this weekend and there’s no turning back

    • Thanks Marcella! I have yet to make homemade corn tortillas. Do you have a favorite recipe you could share?

      • Basic recipe is 1 cup nixtamal (I use Maseca brand), 2/3 cup water (sub chicken broth for more flavor) and 1/4 tsp salt. Mix all three, divide dough into six balls and then use a tortilla press or simply roll each ball out into a disc! Cook over medium-high heat on an ungreased cast iron skillet, 40-60 seconds on one side and 30 seconds on the other side. Tada! Super easy and definitely worth it. I wrote about it here: http://cocinadecella.com/2014/04/30/a-word-on-tortillas/

    I made this yesterday and the flavor and aroma is phenomenal! the hubs went nuts over the meat too, saying it’s the best carne asada he’s ever tasted. Husband and blogger approved!

    Firstly I must thank you for posting this recipe. I made it yesterday and it really tasty. My family like it very much. Keep on sharing more great recipes, I will follow you!

    • Thanks for sharing Duane! Glad this Carne Asada recipe worked out for you and your family 🙂

  6. This makes me miss red meat. Do you think I could sub in chicken breast for the steak and just grill a little longer? These flavors look amazing and I want this happiness in my mouth.

    • You could certainly use chicken here. It’s actually called Pollo Asado 😉 Let me know how it goes!
