Add the trimmed beef inside skirt to the bowl, making sure it's completely coated with the marinade. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 24 hours for more flavor.
Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the beef from the marinade and discard any excess marinade.
Season the beef inside skirt with salt and pepper on both sides.
Place the beef on the hot grill or grill pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until it's cooked to your desired level of doneness.
Remove the beef from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing against the grain into thin strips.
Serve the carne asada with warm corn tortillas, pico de gallo, guacamole, shredded cheese, sour cream, and fresh cilantro.
