Sweet & Spicy Beef Tacos #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we teamed up with the Beef Checkoff to share with you healthy, flavorful recipes that will make your tongue sing and your belly dance.  I am so excited for this recipe because it contains all things I love!  Lots of flavor, a little bit of spice and little bit of sweetness, plus it is a breeze to make and low-calorie too!  My recipe today is Sweet & Spicy Asian Beef Tacos.

Yum!!!  I’m just so full of joy with this recipe.  The tacos are made with a thinly sliced Top Round Beef that has been marinating in soy sauce, crushed garlic and chili paste. Topped with a sweet and spicy mango salsa on a bed of coleslaw mix.  It is an amazing combination of flavors.  To keep it healthy I served it in a corn tortilla.  Oh man, I think I need a taco now!

I wasn’t sure what kind of beef to use, so I checked out the Beef Checkoff website and they have a section called the Interactive Butcher Counter.  This is an awesome site for different cuts of beef.  They have little green symbol called  Lean Cut so I knew what kind of beef I wanted to serve for dinner.  I found my Top Round Beef on it and when I clicked the photo, it had the calories and fat count on it.  Pretty cool.  Then one more click and it showed me a bunch of fun recipes using that cut of meat, plus how to cook it.  I love it!  So if you’re not sure what kind of beef to serve your family, you should check that out.

For the salsa I took fresh mango, and diced it up, added a little bit of red onion and of course I can’t have a taco without jalapenos.  Plus, I squeezed a fresh lime on it.  Perfect little combination.  It’s juicy, sweet, a bit of citrus, plus a pinch of heat.  It’s great on these tacos and great for dipping in chips.  I made a big batch of it to get me through the weekend.

I marinated my meat for about an hour because I was starving and I don’t have the patience to wait any longer.  But you could marinate it up to 4 hours if you would like.  I cooked my Top Round Steak on the grill for about 5 minutes on each side.   Since I got a thin cut of meat, it doesn’t take much time to cook.  I actually cooked it perfectly, because it had a little strip of pink right down the middle.  I have to admit, I am the grill master in my house.  I know my Husband would have over cooked it and made it gray.  He claims he likes his beef that way, but I think he’s crazy.  To me, the less it’s cooked, the more flavor the beef has.
