About Carne Asada


New to Carne Asada? It’s time to join the party. With origins long ago in Northern Mexico, Carne Asada is beloved today as both a savory meat dish and an informal backyard gathering of family, friends and amazing food. In English, “Carne Asada” means “grilled meat” but it also means celebrating what matters most – the joy of family and friends.

Like a family barbecue, Carne Asada is focused on fun and friendship. It can be held to welcome a new baby to the family, congratulate a school graduate, or simply because. At it’s heart, it represents being together and sharing the food of our lives with the people who matter most.

There are as many ways to Carne Asada as there are people who have them. Traditionally, the best meat for Carne Asada is skirt steak—grilled medium rare and thinly sliced. But part of the legacy is also to put your own spin on the party and invite those you love to join in the Carne Asada that is uniquely yours. Show us how you celebrate.
