Carne Asada Fries Recipe


1 bunch cilantro (no stems) chopped
3 garlic cloves (minced)
2 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
juice of 1 lime
zest of 1 lime
1.5lb flank steak
1 (28 ounces) bag French fries
2 cups shredded Colby-jack cheese
sour cream


In a medium bowl combine cilantro, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, olive oil, lime juice, and lime zest. Mix well.
Place the flank steak and the marinade into a large sealable plastic bag.
Make sure that the steak is well coated with the marinade. Seal the bag. Refrigerate for 1-4 hours.
Lightly grease the grates of an outdoor grill. Place the flank steak onto the grill and cook for about 5 minutes on each side.
While the steak is cooking, cook the French fries according to package directions.
Slice the flank steak into thin strips and then chop into smaller pieces.
Place a portion of the French fries onto individual microwave-safe plates. Top with some of the shredded cheese and chopped steak.
Microwave until the cheese melts (about 30 to 60 seconds). Garnish with guacamole and sour cream.
