The social network that celebrates Latin food
When we hit the casinos, we're ready for fun, games, and of course, a little lady luck. And lucky for us, we can get our Mexican food fix as well at Scorpion Bar in Foxwoods Resort Casino. Today, Chef Kevin Long is hitting the mark by showing us how to make a unique Carne Asada with a spicy bite.
Tip: Coriander and fennel seeds add more flavor and texture
Tip: Maggi Seasoning Sauce is a popular condiment in Europe
Trick: For juicier meat, leave on the outside layer of fat
Trick: Score the outside of the steak so that the fat can better melt
Trick: When grilling skirt steak, cook for about 2 minutes on each side
Technique: For ultimate flavor, marinate meat in a sealed bag for up to two days
Technique: Slice meat on a bias for nice presentation and juicy cuts
