Air Fryer Carne Asada Fries

Carne asada translates to “grilled meat.” It is a Latin American dish of grilled and sliced beef. The beef is usually skirt, flank or flap steak cooked with a certain amount of searing to impart a charred flavor. If you’ve visited a Mexican restaurant, you’ve probably seen a carne asada dish on the menu. In these restaurants, carne asada is normally served in tacos or burritos.
Carne asada is probably one of my husband’s favorite kinds of cooked of meat. Believe it or not, he first tried this grilled meat while stationed in South Korea of all places. There was a restaurant in Seoul called Vato’s Urban Tacos. There he would always order the carne asada tacos. The meat is tender and has a wonderful flavor! The great thing about carne asada is it can be deployed as a main dish, an appetizer or as an ingredient to other dishes. Carne Asada Fries happens to be one of those dishes where carne asada is added to a dish and doubles down as an appetizer.
 
Although this recipe may have many steps and an abundant amount of ingredients, you will not be disappointed with the outcome! I love a good appetizer, and Carne Asada Fries are the perfect addition to any meal, party or even just to eat all by yourself! Enjoy!
