Sweet Korean BBQ Beef Tacos – Amazingly tender, super flavorful Korean beef prepared in the crockpot!

Sweet Korean BBQ Beef Tacos - Amazingly tender, super flavorful Korean beef prepared in the crockpot!

You know how you daydream about having a clean house every day? And dinner and a cake made from scratch?
Well. That’s total reality around here. House is impeccable and I have 3-layer cakes waiting for dessert.

Um, only that’s SO not completely true! Layered cakes?! Pshhht! 

Can I be honest? This month, the one that just zoomed past us, was in.sane. Busy, busy, busy. At times, I didn’t know if I was coming or going. New school, new house, moving, shopping for things that didn’t involve shoes or handbags, etc… I am telling you, it was ridiculous. It still is.

 

As it happens, and because I like to be ahead of the game, I had purchased some beef chuck intended for the slow cooker so to help me out on those busy days with fast, yet delicious results. 

The day I made these beef tacos, I cooked about 2 or 3 pounds of Beef Chuck Roast in the slow cooker. We only had about 4 hours until dinner time and, because of our busy schedules, this was truly a blessing. My husband isn’t a fan of meat, but all that changes when you serve the saucy meat inside a flour tortilla with some pretty, colorful lettuce and a good spread of sour cream… topped with hot sauce. 

I have to tell you that, apart from being so convenient, the sauce is also very tasty. The only thing you have to do is add your favorite meat or vegetables, and you have a delicious meal to serve over some pasta, rice, or even stuffed inside taco shells. There are so many possibilities.

Now I am going to stop daydreaming about dinner and start cooking. Beef tacos, again? WHY NOT!?

ENJOY!

  1. I’m normally not the biggest fan of prepared simmering sauces, but that’s because they’re usually chock-full of unpronounceable ingredients, so I’m loving the fact that these are made without the weird processed stuff. I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of a quick-fix dinner every now and then… especially one that’s as yummy-looking as those gorgeous tacos of yours!
    I’m going to have to see if I can track these sauces down on this side of the border (and if they’re not, maybe I’ll just stock up the next time I’m in the US)!

  2. For a second there I was going to say-what? lol.

    I have a crockpot and it is collecting dust. I am intimidated by it, I don’t know why. Partly because I am afraid that cooking something in there might not cook lol. I need to get over my fear and make these tacos!
