    I was waiting my turn at the meat counter when the Mexican man in front of me bought some sliced chuck roast for carne asada. Curious, I asked him for the recipe and here's what he told me to do: marinade the meat overnight with Montreal steak seasoning with some "Pappy's" marinade with paprika to give it some color. Add diced onions and squeeze a whole orange in it. Grill, chop and serve with tortilla and onion/cilantro. Does that sound authentically Mexican enough?

    The in-laws use this...

    But they use it in damn near everything so it's hard to tell what for.

    Oh and they use a different cut of meat and mostly lime juice. But they're also 100% Boricua so things may vary a bit.

    True, good eating down here. Even better is a california burrito with quac and sour cream. You take the carne asada, french fries (preferable non battered) the guac, sour cream, cheese, and a little salsa fresca/pico de gallo and wrap it in the fresh tortilla and it's heaven in your mouth. Truly!
