Smack that Asada all on Floor

Holy shit, I've just discovered one of the best tasting carne asada marinades...EVER. Not only is it delicious, it's incredibly easy as well. The recipe is courtesy of Tyler Florence, who has now unfortunately (or fortunately?) moved on to creating dishes for Applebee's. When I first saw a recipe for carne asada by Tyler Florence, I thought to myself, "How good could this really be? What the fuck does Tyler Florence know about carne asada?" Well, it turns out, quite a bit.

Carne Asada Bombness

"Dry" goods:
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1 jalapeƱo
- 1 large handful fresh cilantro
- salt and black pepper (freshly ground, if you can)

Wet goods:
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1 orange, juiced
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1/2 cup olive oil

- About 2 lbs. flank or skirt steak

1. Blend the dry goods together. Put into a food processor and process into a paste.
2. Combine wet ingredients by pouring them into a bottle or jar that has a lid.
3. Pour the paste into the bottle, close the cap, and shake vigorously to combine.
4. Put the steak into a non-reactive (NOT plastic or styrofoam) bowl or baking dish and pour the marinade over it. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit for 8-10 hours.
5. And now, it's time to conquer Earth! Grill it up to well done and devour!
