Citrus Carne Asada

2 lbs. SunFed Ranch flank steak

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons pepper

2 teaspoon cumin

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice

1 jalapeno, sliced

1 bunch of cilantro, washed and finely minced

1 medium onion, diced

La Familia Tortilla Shop tortillas (or your favorite, but these are locally made using the nixtamal method!)

Pat meat dry with paper towels. Season generously with salt & pepper on both sides. Place in a large resealable plastic bag along with lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit juice, jalapeno and cilantro. Place in the fridge to marinade for 20 minutes (high acid marinades don’t need much time; in fact, the acid will start to chemically cook the meat if you leave it too long).

Heat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Grill 6 to 8 minutes per side, depending on thickness or until internal temperature reaches 140°F.

Remove to a platter, allow meat to rest for 10 minutes (letting it rest is so important). Dice finely, serve in warm tortillas garnished with onion and cilantro.
