This easy, paleo version of carne asada is a great way to prepare grass fed flank steak!


  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • juice from one large lime
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pound flank steak


  1. Place all ingredients except flank steak in a blender or food processor and puree.
  2. Place the flank steak in a shallow dish or plastic bag, add the marinade and toss to coat.
  3. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  4. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
  5. Remove steak from marinade and grill on first side for about 4 minutes. Flip and grill on other side for 2-4 minutes, depending on thickness of steak and how well done you desire it to be.
  6. Remove steak from grill and tent with foil, allow to rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slide the meat against the grain.
  7. Serve with salad, guacamole, rice (if desired), and any other desired accompaniments such as salsa or grilled vegetables.
