What's this?

Lean, mean, and a southwestern flavor machine. Take up this twist on classic carne asada with a little field-to-traeger action.

Ingredients

  • 2 Whole Guajillo Chiles, seeds and stems removed

  • 2 Whole Ancho Chiles, seeds and stems removed

  • 4 Chipotle Pepper

  • 2 Whole orange, juiced

  • 2 Whole lime, juiced

  • 2 Tablespoon soy sauce

  • 2 Tablespoon fish sauce

  • 4 Clove garlic

  • 1 Tablespoon cumin

  • 2 Tablespoon brown sugar

  • 2 Tablespoon salt

Steps

  • 1

    In a medium bowl pour 1 ½ cups boiling water over the dried chiles and top with a plate to weigh them down and keep them completely submerged. Soak the chiles for 30 minutes or until completely rehydrated.
  • 2

    In a blender pitcher, combine rehydrated chiles, chipotle peppers, orange juice, lime juice, soy, fish sauce, garlic, cumin, brown sugar and salt. Puree until smooth. Pour mixture over flank and marinate overnight.
  • 3

    When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until a fire is established (4-5 minutes).
  • 4

    Place the steak directly on the grill grate and cook on smoke for 30-45 minutes or until the internal temperature comes up to 110 degrees F.
  • 5

    When the internal temperature of the steaks reach 110 degrees F, remove from the grill.
  • 6

    Increase the temperature on the Traeger grill to High and preheat, lid closed, 10-15 minutes.
  • 7

    When the grill is hot, place the steaks back on the grill and sear 2-4 minutes each side or until internal temperature reaches between 125-130 degrees F for medium rare.
  • 8

    Remove steaks from grill and let rest 10 minutes before slicing. To serve, warm the tortillas, top with toppings of choice. Enjoy!
