Goodweed's Favorite taco filing - Shredded Beef
Ingredients:
1 large chuck roast
2 onions, coarse chop
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbs. chopped, fresh cilantro
2 tsp. ground coriander, spread all over the roast after it's seared
Salt
Get your heaviest skillet screaming hot, add a couple tbs. cooking oil and sear all sides of the roast to a deep brown color. Remove from heat, lightly salt all sides, and place in a slow cooker on low (not "keep warm") setting with the remaining ingredients. Let cook overnight or while you're at work. Just before serving, prepare your taco veggies and place in bowls, ready to build tacos. Have the shredded cheese ready as well. Remove the meat to a platter and shred with two forks. Place the shredded beef back into the slow cooker and mix with the juices. Pour off excess liquid and reserve for making fine gravies or sauces. Build your tacos and enjoy.

Goodweed's favorite Burrito filling - Carne Asada
Ingredients:
1 skirt or flank steak (about 2 lbs.)
Salt
Freshly ground coarse black pepper
juice of 1 lime
2 tbs. each diced green, yellow, and red bell pepper
1 medium white onion, diced
1 bunch cilantro, minced
Charcoal grill with hot charcoal

Lightly salt the steak and throw on the grill. Cover and cook for 3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and let rest for 10 minutes. During that time, use the grill to cook some corn on the cob, or other favorites.

Finely dice the steak and mix together with the lime juice, cilantro, pepper, onions and diced bell peppers. Heat a heavy skillet ofer medium-high heat and add 2 tbs. cooking oil. Pour the mixture into the pan and saute until the onion is soft and translucent. Remove from the heat and use to fill the best burritos ever.

since i am making these only for myself, i use stew meat cooked in my small slow cooker. it gets very tender using this method and it is cheap.

gotta do this maybe tomorrow , have some stew meat in freezer

tomorrow, I'm having lentils and cabbage. I won't be haunted for sure. I guarantee that there will be a wide buffer around me for the rest of the day =)

Our favorites are (used separately, of course) shredded chicken, ground turkey, & catfish "nuggets".

Just made tacos last night for dinner.

Used ground turkey and a black bean salsa on top of it (black beans, garlic, jalapeno, tomato, red onion lime juice, cilantro, cumin powder, black pepper and salt).

Ladeled the taco with ground turkey followed by the black bean salsa and then the regular cheese, sour cream, guacamole and lettuce.

It was a hit with the kids. The black bean salsa was so good and flavorful that I could eat a taco just made with that alone.

So in addition to Vyapti's lentil suggestion, black beans are awesome as well and no one is going to hunt me down for using vegetarian options . I am what I eat and it can be whatever I feel is good for me.

My boy left for the summer. He came back squeezing fresh lime juice over everything. I don't know why I never thought of it myself, a slice of lime squeezed over the top really works well.

Look back a few posts at the Carne Asada recipe. The lime and Cilantro are what make the recipe extra-yummy.
