I think it’s one of the best foods you can make at home and quite honestly, one of the easiest. It’s like having street food at home all the time once you get a good recipe under your belt. The trick is definitely in flavoring the meat just right.
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 cup honey
1-1/2 pounds fully trimmed beef brisket
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon olive oil + more for sautéing
1 small yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 roasted red bell pepper, roughly chopped
4 cups water
* Preheat oven to 325 F.
* In medium bowl thoroughly mix dry ingredients with the honey. Add the meat, vinegar and olive oil and rub this mixture into the meat on all sides. Place on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet and roast in the oven for 30 minutes.
* Once removed from the oven, transfer the meat to a large Dutch oven with a little olive oil. Gently heat the oil, onion, garlic, bell pepper then add the meat. Next add the water and Knorr halal beef bouillon. Mix thoroughly.
* Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat. Cover and simmer for 1-1.5 hours.
* Use two forks to pull apart the meat in preparation for the taco building. Heat the tortillas and prepare all the sides to build the perfect taco.
