Carne Asada. Carne Asada, which translates to “grilled meat,” is a Mexican dish that can traditionally mean any number of cuts of steak. We will be using outside skirt steak, or commonly known as arracheras in Spanish, meaning "belt.” The “outside” skirt steak is the diaphragm muscle of the cow cut from the plate, which does in fact look like a belt. This cut of meat is sold exclusively to restaurants, due to the labor necessary to trim the meat. It is a thicker and more flavorful cut than the “inside” skirt steak, which comes from the flank, and is available in the supermarket. We will be serving the Carne Asada with flour tortillas, but the traditional corn tortillas are available at checkout.
Michoacan-Style Carnitas. This famous dish is pork cooked in its own fat, or similar to the French confit. The Carnitas actually will be cooked Sous Vide, using its own fat for poaching, rather than requiring any additional lard for cooking. The meat will only require reheating prior to serving. The meat is seasoned with spices like cinnamon, cloves, bay leaf, and oregano, and a mixture of Guajillo and Ancho peppers, and can be served with either corn or flour tortillas. We will have a tomatillo Salsa Verde, Diced Onions, Cotija Cheese, Crema, black beans, Cilantro, and a few limes.
A comment on seasoning. We purposely under season and keep spice to a minimum, as salt and heat can always be added but are difficult to take away. So, if you like your carne asada hot, then choose the jalepenos at checkout, broil them up, and season to taste.
