Korean taco trucks seem to be all the rage these days. I wanted to find a way to recreate those savory sweet tacos at home.

  • Stir chicken broth, soy sauce, green onions, sugar, and sesame oil into the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer until beef cheeks are tender, about 2 hours.

  • Remove beef cheeks from the pot using a slotted spoon; cut into bite-size pieces. Arrange beef on a dish and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  • Place a scoop of beef and some kimchi over each tortilla.

I like this a lot; especially when the beef cheeks were combined with the kimchi. That's a match made in heaven. The beef on it's own however could use a little more flavor I think. It's good just something's missing. I think I will try some fresh ginger rice wine vinegar or maybe some Chinese five spice in the future. I also made this easier by browning everything in a Dutch oven then putting it in the oven at 275 degrees for about 4 hours. And I didn't have sesame seeds so I left them out. I will definitely make this again. Thank you! Read More
