Carne Asada Garlic Fries “Venison style”

Living in Southern California, one of our favorite dishes would have to be Carne Asada Fries.

Carne Asada: translates from Spanish quite literally meaning “Grilled Meat” its traditionally made by marinating and grilling the skirt, flap or flank steak from beef.  Cooking it fast and hot getting a nice char on the outside while the inside stays a nice med-med rare.

Since giving up beef 4 years ago this is a dish i have been missing in my life. Last night i decided i needed them back in my life..

Here is my wild game Version of the classic Carne Asada Fries.
