Carne Asada Cheesesteak Recipe


Marinated steak:

  • 1.5 pounds thinly sliced Skirt Steak
  • 1/4 cup minced Garlic
  • 1 Tbl Cliantro Paste
  • 3 Limes
  • 1/3 cup White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ground Oregano
  • 1 tsl Ground Cumin
  • 2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 cup green onion

Put together the sandwich:

  • Garlic Olive Oil
  • thinly sliced Mixed Peppers
  • thinly sliced Onions
  • French Rolls
  • Shredded Mexican Cheese


Combine all ingredients for the Marinated steak and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Note: When cooking the sandwiches, cook two at a time.

When ready to cook the sandwiches, drain the liquid from the meat by putting the meat in a strainer over a bowl.

Brush french rolls with garlic olive oil and put in toaster or broiler.  I prefer to broil the bread as it will only brown one side.

While toaster is going, heat saute pan or grill pan with 1/2-1 tablespoon of garlic olive oil.  Add onions and peppers first and cook for about 3 minutes on high heat.  Move to the side of the pan and add drained meat to pan.  Cook for about 2-3 more minutes, mixing the onions and peppers with the meat about 1/2 way.  

Serve on toasted french rolls, adding shredded mexican cheese.
