Let’s dive in!
1. Steak Mojo
Things You will Need:
Skirt Steak (you can use any cut of your choice)
Garlic – 4 cloves
Jalapeno – fresh or can
1/2 cup Olive Oil
2 tablespoons White Vinegar
S + P
* It all seems like a lot, but it REALLY isn’t! You’ll see!
*We ended up not using the tomato. Not pictured in this picture is the garlic
To start off, we have to first marinate the meat. We chose to use to skirt steak but you can use anything you would like. The most common are top-round, sirloin, flank etc you commonly used in carne asada.
To marinate the steak, combine garlic, jalapeños, lime juice, lemon juice, cilantro, white vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper in a food processor/chopper. You can also just chop up the ingredients if you don’t have one…but this will take forever!
The Marinade should look like this:
1 Hour Later….
Set a pan on high heat and heat the pan to a high heat. Add your steak to a dry pan and begin to fry it up. Cook the steak to your liking. For burritos, we prefer to have the steak medium well.
1 tsp of veg. oil or butter
2/3 cup long grain or white basmati rice
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 lime for juice
We adapted this recipe from an online source that stated that it was released from Chipotle! So yay, for those of you who love Chipotle’s Rice–let’s celebrate! 🙂
Heat oil/butter over low heat and stir until melted. Add rice and lime juice. Stir for one minute.
Once the rice is done, stir in the fresh cilantro.
DONE! How EASY was THAT?
NOW the burrito is almost done. Go to the grocery store and get some cheese, sour cream, etc. Don’t forget to get your flour tortilla too! Pile on the rice, meat, sauce, cheese, and sour cream. Wrap it up and YESSS.. dig in folks!
NOTE: We also made some corn salsa. If you would like this recipe, email us, and we will gladly share it with you. We wanted to post it up, but unfortunately, no pictures were take of this, so we decided not to post it up.
