{Easy} Carne Asada Recipe

I recently learned about a simple and delicious Costco meal.  It is called Carne Asada {which literally means ‘roasted meat’} and it comes already marinated!

This package cost about $15 and my family of four ate it for two meals.  Score!

Here is the easy ‘how to’ for preparing this meal, with a fun veggie addition.  Serve this and you will look like you slaved in the kitchen for hours!

Cut up three bell peppers.

Place cut up bell peppers in a ziploc baggie or tupperware.

Mix in 1/8 to 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1 tsp lemon pepper and 1 tsp garlic salt (you can substitute other seasonings if you don’t have these on hand).   Let the bell pepper mixture marinate in the fridge for a few hours before you cook the meat.

Lay the meat in a shallow pan and cook at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.

{So raw meat isn’t the most appetizing thing to look at. Trust me, once this starts to cook, your house will smell like a four star restaurant!}

After 30 minutes, put the marinated bell peppers on top of the meat.  Cook for an additional 15 minutes (or until the Carne Asada is cooked to your liking).

Open the oven and say “Yum!” because dinner is served!

How easy was that?!
