Carne asada is a simple dish, but a well-balanced marinade and the right cut can make it memorable. Here we use easy-to-find skirt steak and a marinade combining orange and lime juices.
Recipe: Carne Asada con Mojo
Pair with: Malbec. It's generally a concentrated, dark-fruited wine that works beautifully with some smoky char from the grill. And since the grape has taken on a South American connection as the signature red of Argentina, we’ve gone with the Latin vibe for this match. Recommended bottle: Tertulia 2008 Malbec (Columbia Valley).
