Korean Beef Tacos - Whoa. Guys. These are the most mind-blowing tacos EVER! Filled with everyone's favorite Korean beef, caramelized kimchi + Sriracha mayo!

I feel like I have been all over the place these last 10 days. I was in Arkansas last weekend, then flew off to Minneapolis for a quick work trip at the General Mills headquarters, then worked at the studio in downtown Los Angeles for two days, and now I’m off to Ecuador tomorrow morning!

MY OTHER RECIPES

I literally have been all over the place. But the only thing keeping me sane right now are these tacos.

These Korean beef tacos that are absolutely to die for.

I don’t know if it’s the Korean beef, the caramelized kimchi or the Sriracha mayo, or the combination of everything neatly tucked in a mini flour tortilla.

It’s just amazing. And I’ve had about 17 of these while packing for my next trip.

Maybe I can pack 3-5 for the flight? The passenger sitting next to me probably won’t mind, right?
