The Best Street Tacos
This Street Tacos recipe is fantastic and it’s dependent on the availability of the kind of Roast I like to use; Cacheta De Res or Cabeza. 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 means more flavor and it really helps set off the additional spices.
I don’t know about you but I like my Street Taco meat tender and the Slow Cooker really helps to take it to that next level. You can add you’re seasoning before or after the roast cooks but I recommend adding it after. Using a slow cooker with a heavy glass lid, like mine has, makes the beef roast sweat a lot of juice that I like to add back into the beef after it’s been pulled and seasoned. Using all of the liquid tends to drown out the added seasoning and will require more if you do but that will be up to you.
Other Street Tacos
In this Street Tacos video, I’ve included links for my Chipotle Chicken recipe and my Enchilada/Chili Verde recipe. So definitely check both of those out. I have a ton of Mexican and Latin American recipes through out my website and a great Barbacoa recipe if you’re interested, as well.
If you think outside the box, realize that you can take any of these meat recipes and turn them, completely, into something else. For example: Nacho’s, Rice Bowls, Burritos or Chimichangas, Enchiladas etc.. And, with any of these recipes, I always recommend fresh ingredients, warm tortillas, chopped onion, cilantro and lime. And if you really want to step it up a notch, add tomatoes, cheese, guacamole and sour cream or crema. Follow this regime and you’ll be well on your way to eating some amazing food.
