In Latin America, “carne asada” literally means “grilled meat”. While the flavors in the rubs and marinades for carne asada vary, this zippy rub adds a Latin flare with very few ingredients. This is a wet rub and should be made no more than a day in advance.


  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lime zest
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1⁄2 tsp pepper 
  • 1⁄2 tsp Mexican oregano


1 Combine in a small bowl. 

2 Slather on the meat and allow it to sit at least 30 minutes before smoking or grilling.
