Spicy Asian Taco

Another twist on a classic! I love tacos, and I love Asian inspired flavors! So why not create a little flavor infusion! These tacos are quick easy, and delicious. They are topped with a fresh made quick pickle of cucumber and radishes for a little tangy sweet flavor! Great for a quick family dinner.

Here’s what you’ll need!

For pickle topping:

3-4 large radishes thinly sliced

2 small cucumbers thinly sliced

2 Tbsp white wine vinegar

salt

pepper

and 1 tsp sugar

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, coat vegetables well and set aside to “pickle” the veggies. Stir occasionally as you prepare the rest of the meal.

For spicy sour cream:

3 Tbsp sour cream

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

For Beef filling:

1 Tbsp oil

1lb lean ground beef

2 cups shredded purple cabbage

3 green onions thinly sliced

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 tsp sugar

2 Tbsp soy sauce

1 Tbsp sesame oil

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes,

1 tsp Siracha sauce

Flour tortillas, and chopped cilantro

Taco Tuesday…Well Sort Of
