How To Cook Carne Asada In The Oven

Oven-roasted carne asada (2 to 4 servings)

  • Author: Bobby


  • 2 lbs of thin flap, skirt or flank steak (trimmed of excess fat)

For marinade and seasonings

Equipments required

  • Digital instant-read thermometer
  • Cooking foil (optional)
  • Measuring cup (optional)


  1. Generously combine the marinade ingredients and seasonings carefully stirring it together, then in a resealable plastic or zip line bag, pour marinated mix and place your raw steak into plastic bag. Make sure to thoroughly mix them up together to help the beef absorb all that juicy goodness. Store it in the refrigerator for at least 3 to 24 hours and afterwards, remove for cooking.
  2. Heat your broiler or skillet to a high temperature and place your beef on an aluminum foil in the broiler. Cook in the oven for 4 to 6 minutes on each side and only remove steak from oven once you confirm it’s internal temperature with the instant-read thermometer by inserting it into the thickest part of the beef.
  3. By this time, your steak would have developed a nice dark crispy crust. We’ve got 115 to 120°F for rare steak, 120 to 125°F for a medium-rare steak, 130 to 135°F for medium steak then 140 to 145°F for medium-well steak. Allow beef sit for 5 minutes before slicing against the grain then serving.
