Finally we have tacos on the blog and not just any taco. Would you like to know how to make the best organic beef tacos? Like the best tacos ever? Because I can promise you that you will love these tacos and go back to this recipe again and again. The grounded beef is organic, the sauce is thick and the taste is rich of flavor. Simply everything you need in classic beef tacos. Lets get started!
The biggest secret how to make the best organic beef tacos lies in number 1 in the lean organic ground beef and second turning the meat into a ragu similar to a Bolognese sauce. You need to give the meat time to absorb the flavors of the ingredients. This takes times.
I started buying organic meat five years ago because it is important that animals have a better life and living conditions. If as a result the taste is also better that is an added bonus.
When I make the sauce for these tacos I start out with the grounded beef. As the meat has enough fat no additional cooking product is required. First let the meat brown before you start adding the vegetable. The ground beef will release fat and liquid that will soften the bell peppers and onions when you add them.
After you added the garlic the next step is to add the right spices. I use two spices but you can add more of your favorites spices and herbs if you. The spices I use are:
- Chili powder
I do not use tomatoes or tomato sauce at all only tomato puree or paste. Once the sauce thickens and the meat and vegetables absorb the flavors the sauce will become red and rich like Bolognese sauce. To finish the sauce I add some vegetable stock to give the sauce more depth. The last ingredient is a can of kidney beans. I drain the liquid from the can first before adding the kidney beans to the meat stew. Stir it thoroughly and then let it simmer. At least 30 minutes but preferably for an hour.

I do not use any baking product as there is a lot of fat in the ground beef. Once the beef starts to brown the fat will be released and able to soften the bell pepper, onion and garlic. You can substitute vegetable stock for chicken or beef stock. I do not add additional salt and pepper as the stock contains salt and I use chili powder. Of course you can add salt and pepper to taste.
