Category: Beef, Meat, Pork

 Ingredients List

  • 5 Cloves garlic
  • 1/4 c Olive oil
  • 3 Limes; juiced
  • 1 1/2 lb Pork shoulder butt steak
  • 1 1/4 lb Beef flap meat
  • Salt; pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Dried Mexican oregano
  • 1 lb Tomatillos; husks removed
  • 1/4 c Chopped cilantro


Pound 5 cloves garlic to coarse puree in mortar and pestle. Add olive oil
and grind to paste. Scrape into mixing bowl and whisk in juice of 2 1/2
limes until smooth. (If using blender, grind garlic and oil together, then
pulse in lime juice.)

Cut pork and beef into thin 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick slices. Dust liberally
with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and oregano. Dip pork slices 1 at a
time in garlic paste and put in plastic storage bag. Then dip beef slices 1
at a time in garlic paste and put in another plastic bag. Seal bags tightly
and refrigerate at least 2 hours to overnight.

Broil tomatillos in single layer about 1 inch from heat source until tops
have begun to blacken and blister. Remove from broiler, cut in half and
puree in blender with remaining garlic clove and juice of 1/2 lime until
smooth. Season with salt to taste and, if necessary, add more lime juice.
Pour into serving bowl and stir in cilantro.

Thread meat onto skewers and grill over very hot fire until browned and
crisp on outside but still moist inside, about 7 minutes on first side, 5
minutes on second. Place skewers on platter and serve with Tomatillo salsa.
