I need a carne asada recipe that's easy and stove-top friendly.

As an Arizonan exiled in Wisconsin, I find myself suffering from a lack of good and/or accesible carne asada. My problem is that I am not a cook but I am very lazy.
A couple other limitations:
- no outdoor grill
- no nearby mexican grocer
- a grocery store with no butcher, but otherwise okay
- general ignorance about cooking
- feeding me alone
what I do have:
- an electric stove and various standard pans including a cast iron skllet
- small Hispanic food section at grocery store
I prefer ease over authenticity, all else being equal.
I've googled a few recipes but there is a wide range of styles. For example--do I cook the steak whole or pre-slice? Do I marinade and with what and for how long? What cut of steak is suitable and carried in the typical selection of pre-cut meats?
