One of the great things about summer is all the outdoor get-togethers, barbecues, and picnics. It’s definitely up there as one of my favorite ways to spend a weekend gathered with friends eating delicious food and catching up. I smile just thinking about it. And all summer I have been bringing these Korean Beef Tacos to summer gatherings. Sweet and spicy, they make a delicious and interesting main dish and the shredded beef tastes great in tacos, on sandwiches, or on its own. However since this has been my staple all summer, I wanted to mix it up a little and add a sesame twist. Today’s recipe mimics the flavors of traditional sesame beef but in a shredded, slow cooker version. This weekend we ate it stuffed into hollowed out French bread with quick pickled veggies, cilantro, and jalapenos to make homemade banh-mi sandwiches. It would also be tasty served over rice, as Asian tacos, wrapped up in lettuce cups with crunchy veggies, or served up with snap peas and brown rice.
