Here is my take on Carne Asada Fries. Some of the gourmet food trucks that roll around L.A. have taken the carne asada tacos and burritos to another level. This is just one way to get this dish going. Feel free to add some more of your favorite toppings.


For meat marinade
Fresh lime juice 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Fresh lemon juice 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Fresh orange juice 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
