If you’re anything like me, meal planning happens on Saturday afternoon and grocery shopping happens on Sunday morning, which is why I wanted to get this easy Korean beef taco recipe on your radar for the week!
First, let’s understand that making steak tacos with coleslaw is outside of my comfort zone. I’m a chicken taco kinda gal, but when TX Organics sent us some of their organic beef and I happened to be craving tacos, we got creative (and I may never go back to chicken tacos, ever.)
Grab yourself some of your favorite tortillas, a bag of coleslaw, some TX Organics steak with the following marinade, and you’ve got yourself a delicious dinner.

For the marinade, mix the brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, ginger, vegetable oil and garlic in a bag. Place your TX Organics beef (we used the carne asada) in the bag to marinate for 24 hours.
We ended up slicing the carne asada in thin strips and seared them in our cast iron skillet for about one minute per side. The coleslaw was nothing fancy – it came in a bag. Instead of making a mayo-based ‘slaw, we used about 2 tablespoons of sour cream, the juice of one lime, and salt and pepper to taste. It added the perfect crunch to the savory carne asada!
Serve with a side of tortilla chips and some homemade guac, and you’re practically in Heaven.
While I was not compensated for this post, I have to give a major shout out to TX Organics, because they sent us some of their beef and it did not disappoint. What I love about TX Organics is that they’re a family owned company that’s committed to producing the cleanest, organic grass-fed beef possible. And because I get super wary of companies that throw the “organic” label out there, I was quite impressed to learn that all of their cattle are certified organic black Angus and are part of the Global Animal Partnership (the GAP is a program that ensures the highest standards of the humane treatment of cattle.)
