    PanNan's Note:

    When I visited my DB and SIL this year, she made some fabulous beef tacos. Her cooking is authentic Mexican, which she learned from her mother. I watched her make this simple recipe. She served the beef with tortillas (our choice of flour or corn) and Aztec guacamole. I've also posted the recipe for the guacamole - a must for these tacos. The combination is so flavorful, tender, fresh, and, using corn tortillas, very low fat.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place sliced beef strips in medium saucepan. Cut the onion and garlic in quarters. Add to the beef in the saucepan. Add salt and the water.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer, uncovered, slowly for 1 - 1 1/2 hours until the beef is very tender (check from time to time to make sure it hasn't boiled dry).
    3. 3
      Serve beef with warm soft tortillas and Aztec guacamole (posted separately).

      This was very good! Made the house smell fantastic. Next time I think I will cut the onion a little smaller, and add some green bell pepper, but that's just personal preference. I can't wait to try this in a burrito (or chimichanga)! The guacamole was great, too. I think you can see the beef peeking out from under it just a little bit in my sorry photo. :)

      hubby really liked this. the meat still had plenty of liquid and was tender. i used a ribeye as it was all i had in the freezer. i also added a little bit more spices but that's it. very nice and mild meal. thanks PanNan!!

      This was FABULOUS! And so easy to make--I went to a grocery in town that has really good meat and got the sirloin already sliced for stir-fry. The only change I'd make for next time would be to maybe add a can of chiles or some jalapeno. I took one of the reviewer's advice and served it with white onion slivers. We'll make this again!
