Carne asada is a delicious sliced grilled beef made with spices to marinate the meat before grilling. A torta is a Mexican sandwich usually served on a bolillo roll, a savory white roll that is crusty on the outside (we used a softer sandwich bun when we made our tortas).
Combine marinade ingredients and pour over the meat. Toss to coat and let marinate overnight. Grill meat until cooked to your preference.
To assemble: Spread guacamole on the tops and bottoms of the rolls. Top bottom buns with meat followed by tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, jalapenos, and hot sauce. Gently press the top buns over the sandwich. Serve.
Flap meat is another name for a sirloin tip steak, and may also be referred to as “faux hanger.” It is an inexpensive cut of meat that is perfect for grilling, but if you can’t find flap meat you can substitute flank steak.We used sandwich rolls for our tortas, but if you can find French rolls or bolillo, they are a more authentic style torta.
