The end of summer is almost upon us, but that’s not stopping this Tejana from grilling. I mean c’mon we Texans have the ability to grill year-round with our temperatures.
Today, I am grilling up the juiciest carne asada purchased at my local HEB, marinated in Coca-Cola, cumin and onion. Once grilled, I’m slicing it up and serving on King’s Hawaiian Hamburger Buns topped with plenty of cucumber salsa.
My cucumber salsa is made with diced cucumbers, jalapenos, red onions, fresh lime juice and plenty of fresh cilantro. Crispy, crunchy and spicy, my cucumber salsa adds a touch of spice to the carne asada, while giving you a mouthful of summer’s best.
I marinated my carne asada with Coca-Cola, ground cumin, salt, pepper, and sliced onions. Coca-Cola helps to tenderize the meat while adding flavor. Once grilled the flavor of the Coca-Cola is enhanced and really makes your carne asada shine.
I served my carne asada on King’s Hawaiian Hamburger Buns. A unique soft, fluffy texture with just a touch of sweetness. King’s Hawaiian Hamburger Buns are ideally sized for not only your signature carne asada, but for your special burger. They perfectly complement the flavors of your favorite recipes and toppings for a mouth-watering taste that is irresistibly delicious.
