Where's the BEEF...in the Taco...Beef Taco's


Watching Survivor, I finally some time to breath and catch up, yeah!  No Tivo, so as the commercials roll I fondly recalled the classic Burger King commercials with the elderly lady demanding, "Where's the beef!".  We thought it was so funny but McDonald's golden arches and most wonderful french fries collected our coins.

American Test Kitchen beef taco recipe wonderful and versatile.  If you are not a red meat eater, try white meat ground turkey; my preference.
