Street Tacos

Youtube Street Tacos 3

This Street Tacos recipe is dependent on the availability of the kind of Roast I like to use; Cacheta De Res.  If you can find it in a major Super or Grocery Market it will most likely be with the Beef Tongue and the Ox Tail, because it’s Beef Cheek Meat.  But, don’t let that intimidate you one bit.  It is HANDS DOWN the best meat for street tacos, in my opinion.  It’s a bit Gamier, which really helps set off the Mexican spices, and it the Crock pot really takes it to that next level of tenderness we all want in our beef and Street Tacos.  Also, at the end of this video and in the links below, I’ve included my Chipotle Chicken recipe, for tacos and burritos, and my Enchilada/Chili Verde recipe.  So definitely check both of those out!

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
