Remember that carne asada recipe I posted? The one with the bomb cilantro, olive oil, soy sauce, orange + lime juice, garlic, jalapeno and cumin marinade?

Well, I made it again, sliced it up, and turned them into crack burrito bowls.

That’s right. I totally did.

I used farro as my base (but brown rice, white rice, quinoa, or any other grain will work just fine here), and topped it off with a quick homemade pico de gallo, roasted corn kernels (leftover from the grilled corn with cilantro lime butter), and avocado slices.

To finish it off, I drizzled on my favorite cilantro lime dressing – the dressing I make for basically anything and everything.

Now the prep/ingredient list may seem a bit long and a little daunting but don’t worry. The carne asada is a simple marinade that needs about 4 hours in the fridge and you can prep everything else in the meantime.

Oh, and your hard work will pay off when you can meal prep this for the rest of the week!
