Taco Tuesday

Kosher Guru here, back again for another amazing dish. It’s actually one of my favorites and my kids love having them on Tuesdays. Well if you haven’t guessed already its taco Tuesday, and I’d like to share my meat with you, meat sauce that is.


It’s already cooking on the stove and the aromas in the Kosher Guru home are fantastic. I wish you could just smell them from the screen. I start by degreasing my chopped meat in a large pot with water. It doesn’t matter how much water because as soon as it’s cooked through I strain it and rinse it. I know I might be getting rid of some flavor but its way healthier and by the way I eat out a lot, so I have to cut some calories somewhere. Once drained I add my meat back into the big pot I started in (I don’t want to make too much of a mess or I’ll never be allowed back in the kitchen). I add to that a can of crushed tomatoes, a whole head, yes you heard me an entire head of garlic and lots of spices. I also like to add to my sauce carrots and potatoes. I peel, chop, and steam my potato and carrots in some water, and when fork tender I add it to my meat sauce. I then like to cook my sauce for about 10 minutes on high and let it all come together so it’s nice and bubbly, then I lower my flame to low and cook it down for about t an hour. I love hard taco shells, don’t know about you? The crunch together with my meat sauce is oh so amazing. I get my taco shells ready by putting them in the oven on a cookie sheet for about 5 minutes on 350. Oh yum, I can’t wait to load up my taco and dig in. I usually chop up tomato, lettuce, make some rice and some slaw on the side and oh what a dinner it is. Next time I’m making tacos come on by to taste and smell the aromas of this amazing creation. Hope you enjoy taco Tuesday as much as I do and please send me your favorite way to eat your taco.

  • Happy Bloggernacle Day! I’m new here, and honestly a little intimidated but I figured I’d pop on and say hi at the behest of my dear husband, Dan. Tagore, You will never get an anti-Yankee post from me, and I seek to destroy any one my husband tries to come up with before he can hit &#p.&0;8ost22#8221; If you ever decide to come back from the Dark Side, let me know.
