Recipe

Living in Los Angeles, there are literally thousands of taco trucks and some of my favorites are Asian inspired taco trucks. However, based on the amount of grease I normally see resting on the bottom of my container after eating them, I don’t think they are all too healthy. This simple crock pot version came out delicious and is low in points and calories. It is perfect for tacos or served with salad or rice. Tomorrow I think I may try using some of the leftovers in a Banh Mi sandwich which I think would be delicious.

Directions

  1. Combine the sugar, soy sauce, red onion, jalapenos, ginger, rice vinegar, sesame seeds in a small bowl.
  2. Add the beef and garlic to the crock pot and cover with the sauce.
  3. Cook for 8-10 hours on low. When it has 30 minutes left to cook and the beef can be easily shredded with a fork, break it into larger pieces. Continue cooking without the lid on so the sauce thickens up.
  4. Finish shredded the beef and serve over warm corn tortillas with jicama slaw.

Notes

To make the jicama slaw
Combine half a bag cole slaw mix, 1/2 diced jicama, 1/4 chopped cilantro, 1/4 cup diced red onion, 2 tbsp peanut dressing, 1 tsp Asian hot sauce, and the juice of two limes. Mix together and serve on the side or on top of the taco itself.
