From My Kitchen: Korean Beef Tacos

Tacos are life! Get ready to have Taco Tuesday at your home, make some great ones all by yourself. Tacos are getting more and more versatile, new ingredients, new flavor profiles, and most definitely other cultures are getting involved. So, yes. Korean Beef Tacos! I’ve tried them recently while wanting to find something new to eat, and I loved them! So, of course, I had to make some at home, and I never looked back. They are now an official staple of my kitchen, a weekday go-to. I’m positive that you will love them too, and hold on to the recipe. Beware, the beef requires to be marinated for 4 to 12 hours, so start your prep early!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 lbs flank steak
  • 12 to 14 small flour tortillas
  • 1 small purple cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro leaves, chopped

Sriracha Mayo:


In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for the marinade. Cut the beef into bite size pieces, and add to the bowl. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours to overnight.

In another bowl, add all ingredients for the taco sauce, stir well. Heat a large pan over high heat. Add the beef to the pan, let it sizzle and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Stir and cook for an additional 3 – 5 minutes, achieving your preferred done-ness. Stir occasionally. Toast the tortillas. Assemble the tacos, beef on the bottom, then the taco sauce, top off with chopped cilantro and red cabbage.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
