Marinated, grilled beef known as carne asada is a beloved staple in Colombia. The marinade typically has orange juice or lime juice, as well as garlic, spices, and beer. Serve carne asada with a salsa de aji picante (tomato-based chile pepper sauce) and some arepas, or use it as a filling for an arepa sandwich.
