"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."

"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!"
"I was skeptical, but I made this based on the reviews and I'm glad I did.. I can't believe how much flavor the meat absorbed from the onion/garlic/salt whilst simmering.. amazing! I also made your Aztec Guac to go with and I agree, these flavors definately belong together! Both recipes are keepers, definately.. thanks!"
"This was great! I was very skeptical at first because I thought it was just going to taste like some boiled meat...I was soooo wrong! Very tender, great flavor and so easy. I think this will be the new way I cook my beef for tacos. "
"Oh my, this was good---perfect in every way! And so easy. I served this warm on taco salads for dinner, and it was given a big thumbs up from DH. Can't wait to try it with the Aztec Guac. Thanks, PanNan, for a keeper I will make again and again."
"Wow! Pan. Growing up in a Mexican community we always had Beef Tacos served with Avacado Slices and White Onion Slivers. This recipe is what my memories have been hungering for. Thanks so much for the post!!"
"Oh my! My Mom and I love beef (Alberta gal here) and this made a very tasty meal. We didnt have any guacamole, so My mom suggested that we use hummus instead. Very good."
"Very easy to make. The outcome is excellant! Each one of us had a different topping."
"This is absolutely GREAT! I couldn't imagine it turning into the great dish that it did. So easy, yet so good! I had it with the Aztec guacamole that PanNan suggested and both were superb!!! Your recipes are great PanNan. I am so glad I chose you!!!"
