Carne Asada Jerky Marinade

jerky marinade
Carne Asada combines together spicy flavors of Mexico with the fruity, citrus flavors of orange, lime, and lemon. While traditionally used for grilling meats, it also makes for very tasty jerky!


3 tablespoons of vegetable or olive oil
¼ cup of red or white wine vinegar
¼ cup of lemon juice (freshly squeezed or canned lemon juice)
¼ cup orange juice (fresh or canned)
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons of freshly minced garlic
1 tablespoon white pepper
1 table spoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon habanero chili powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon oregano (if you can find Mexican oregano much better)
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
½ orange sliced
¼ chopped cilantro leaves.

Combining the ingredients:

In a bowl, just combine all the ingredients listed above and whist till well blended. Pour the marinade on to the beef. Make sure that the marinated covers the all the beef and the container is well sealed. You can use a big freezer bag so you can easily turn it or a shallow dish with cover. For best result, marinate the beef for 1 hour or more to have the full flavor sink into the meat.

We recommend marinating the meat at room temperature.

This recipe is good for two to three pounds of meat. But if you are having a party and want to do more, you can just double the ingredients of the marinade as well as the beef.
