You’ve all heard me talking about my folks and their love for steak – and I think I’m being corrupted a bit! This Carne Asada is a steak I fell pretty hard for, done up today in taco form.
Slow cooked to perfection, this fall off the bone, tender pork was featured in “Slow Cooker Redeemed” in the New York Times. “It results in a vaguely Vietnamese tangle of pulled pork that is best accompanied by a bright and crunchy slaw, and served on warm flour tortillas…” I made you wait for Vaguely Vietnamese Slow Cooker Pork Tacos, yesterday when I posted the Vaguely Vietnamese Slaw recipe, and I think these Tacos are worth that little delay.
Yet again, I’ve been stuck with leftover steak, people! I know many of you never have that problem; “What leftover steak?” you’d say! And others might not have an issue with a little extra steak in the fridge! But leftover steak has always stumped me just a bit – it seems to sit there and say “I’ll never be as good as the first night.” Well, that’s what I thought until recently, anyway.
Fresh & quick these Grilled Chicken Tacos with Avocado Mango Salsa are sure to become a family favorite. I particularly like this recipe because the chicken uses a dry rub and the Salsa is a quickie so dinner can be on the table in no time at all – no need for a long marinade.
My son, in particular, loves tacos. Hard, soft, he doesn’t care, but he has a particular affinity for tacos made from ground beef, and a love of deep rich flavors and a just little heat. (More heat as he’s gotten older! Can that kid go through the Sriracha now that he’s in his 20’s!) So we started making our Taco Seasoning Homemade, and don’t worry about that little mention of heat and Sriracha; this one is family-friendly.
