Sesame Beef Tacos

Sesame Beef Tacos

with Quick-Pickled Veggies and Chili Sour Cream

Read more

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.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add scallions and cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add beef, garlic powder, and 1 tsp sugar (2 tsp for 4 servings). Cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Stir in sesame oil, half the soy sauce (use all for 4), half the sriracha, and a pinch of chili flakes to taste. Taste and season with salt, pepper, and up to ½ tsp more sugar.
