Carne Asada

The first time I made this recipe, it was for a Christmas Party.  It really works well on a picnic, especially with the new "keep warm" picnic containers.

Alan's Kitchen Picnicking & Tailgating Tip:
You can marinade the steaks a day or two ahead of time.  Keep in plastic wrap until ready to put into ice chest.  Place the wrapped steaks in a plastic container and place in ice chest.  At the picnic or tailgate site, prepare grill and cook normally.
