Sesame Beef Tacos

Sesame Beef Tacos

with Quick-Pickled Veggies and Spicy Crema

20-Min Meal

Instead of going the traditional route with these tacos, we decided to mix things up with a Korean-style sesame beef filling. The filling gets a kick from gochugaru—chili flakes traditionally used in dishes like kimchi and bulgogi. It’s an unconventional choice, perhaps, but one that lives up to the maxim that everything tastes better in a tortilla.
