To make my slow cooked beef for my deluxe taco’s I use one portion of the Taco seasoning and add:
one small onion – chopped
2 garlic cloves (in addition to the one in the seasoning) – chopped
2 tbs of oil for frying
Cook all the seasoning and the above for a few minutes and them brown the beef.
1 kg of Chuck Steak (Högrev)
One small chopped chilli
1 tin of tomatoes
1/2 dl of red wine
Place in the oven in a pot with a lid for a minimum of 6 hours at 100 degrees C – but another 2 hours is no problem. I would either do it over night and just reheat it when you are eating it or if you can all day!
Serve with your usual Taco condiments. I always have Salsa, Guacamole, Turkish Yogurt/Sour Cream and grated cheese (I love cheddar). This time I also made a coleslaw which I can add recipe for later.
I would say I loved the food but when our guests arrived the red wine started to flow hence I chatted and laughed way to much! A great Friday evening dinner – quick to prepare (say around 15 min) and very tasty – I had the leftovers with half an avocado and some scrambled eggs. Delicious!!
The rest of the weekend we ave pottered in the garden, drunk coffee had Saturday sweets (in Sweden this is a very common tradition and one we have not let go despite eating very healthily at other times). Mr M. and I don’t tend to have any… albeit last night the kids had not finished theirs hence I went to bed sugared up feeling way to full! Sunday morning football for eldest and run for me! Ready for the week ahead!
