There's this mexican restaurant near me that makes the best tacos. tacos, like i've never tasted anywhere before. they say it's a california mexican restaurant and i don't really know what that means but the tacos are divine.
the ground beef they use is super greasy, so much so that it just seeps through the shell into the wax paper that they bring them out on. i can't detect any sort of spice in the meat either, which is strange. it's just a messy hard taco. i was wondering though, if anyone has any suggestions on how to get similar results with ground beef. whenever i make my taco meat, it comes out dry and without a lot of flavor and when i add cumin or the chili powder, it just ends up tasting fake. i'd really like to be able to make a good taco for cinco de mayo, so if anyone has any suggestions, i'd love to hear them.
I think the first step is to find some ground beef with a lot of fat in it which isn't that easy to do in my area these days.
I love a good greasy taco, the kind where the grease runs down your arm and starts dripping off your elbow.
Besides using fatty ground beef, add oil to the pan for cooking. Brown well to dry up the moisture and just the fat and meat will remain. You will have unctuous and greasy ground beef.
