The secret to the best beef tacos!
One of our favorite go to recipes is a simple beef taco. For years I’ve been making beef tacos by adding a packet of taco seasoning to a pound of ground beef, until I learned how to make the best beef tacos. This recipe is so simple, but tastes so much better than just dumping a packet of taco seasoning on and calling it good.
All you need for great tasting beef tacos is: a pound of ground beef, a yellow or white onion and lots of cumin. I’m typically not a big onion fan, but onion is the key to the best ground beef tacos. Once you chop, dice and slice the onion up into very small pieces (I love using this ceramic mandolin), you just add it right into the pan with the ground beef and it gives the beef the best flavor. Add in a bunch of cumin right at the end right before serving (I never measure). You’ll have to try it. It’s is so much better than adding a dry packet of taco seasoning.
For this beef taco, we also added our favorite fresh salsa mix – cowboy caviar and fresh diced pineapple. They turned out SO GOOD! Are you a pineapple lover? You’ll have to try adding it, it’s so delicious! It’s amazing the flavor the onion gives the beef, it’s just something a packet of dry seasonings can’t do.
