Trader José's Carne Asada Autentica is well-trimmed, hand-butterflied beef sirloin, bathed in a citrus-y, ever-so-slightly spicy, entirely authentic marinade. It's a near-perfect replication of the carne asada made in homes and restaurants across Northern Mexico. Pop it on a very hot grill or in a very hot pan, and in just a few minutes it's ready to serve in tacos, burritos, fajitas or as the center-of-the-plate with Mexican fixin's. (Traditional preparation involves giving the cooked meat a rough chop before serving - we do not require adherence to tradition.) It also makes an excellent steak sandwich with peppers, onions, mushrooms and melted cheese. We're selling Trader José's Carne Asada Autentica for $7.99* a pound, every day. You'll find it in our fresh meat case.
*Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Carne Asada is $7.49 in our East Coast, Midwest and Southeast stores and $7.99 in our West Coast and Texas stores.
