Step 1

Combine and stir together all marinade ingredients. Transfer meat into a large plastic bag or container and pour marinade over the top. Marinate for at least 4 hours, up to about 24, flipping the meat once halfway through.

Step 2

Adjust top rack of your oven to about 4 inches below the broiler. Heat broiler on high. Place meat on a foil-lined heavy-duty baking sheet or broiling pan and broil 4 to 6 minutes per side. Pull at 135°F for medium-rare, 145°F for medium.

Step 3

Allow meat to rest for 10 minutes before slicing across the grain into strips or chunks. Tent with foil to keep warm while your fries cook.

Step 4

While your meat rests, bake fries according to package instructions, until just done.

Step 5

Set oven temperature to 350°F. If desired, pile cooked fries into a cast iron skillet or assemble fries on the baking sheet.

Step 6

Top cooked fries with chopped carne asada and cheese. Return fries to the oven until cheese is melted, 5 to 7 minutes.

Step 7

Add guacamole, pico de gallo, and sour cream. Sprinkle with cilantro and add sliced jalapenos if desired. Serve and enjoy!
