NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. — Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. is serving a new steak option at its restaurants nationwide. The burrito chain’s carne asada is sliced, seasoned with lime and finished with chopped cilantro and a blend of spices that includes cumin and coriander.
Carne asada joins Chipotle’s original steak on menus for a limited time following testing in Cincinnati and Fresno, Calif., that began in May. It is the newest protein addition since the return of chorizo in September 2018.
“Our carne asada steak is amazingly tender, hand cut and grilled fresh every day,” said Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer of Chipotle. “It performed incredibly well in the test markets, and we're excited to be introducing this terrific, new steak nationwide for a limited time.”
