Combining Mexican & Thai ingredients makes you feel well traveled, but better yet….well fed.

 

Let’s make some tacos! In this recipe succulent beef is seasoned & cooked with coconut milk & Thai red curry paste. In soft taco shells (gluten free corn or flour) layer in a crisp bed of lettuce, chunks of creamy avocado & diced green onion. I told you ~ a blissful combo!

Prep Time5 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time20 mins
 1 pound steak (I like sirloin), cut into bite-sized pieces
 1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
 3/4 cup diced yellow onion
 2 cloves garlic, minced
 1 cup light coconut milk (from the can)
 1 tablespoon [Thai red curry paste|http://astore.amazon.com/familyfreshcooking-20/detail/B000LKVSDM]
 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
 8 six inch corn (gluten-free) or flour tortillas
 2 cups shredded lettuce
 1 avocado, diced & tossed in lemon juice (to prevent browning)
 1 tablespoon sliced green onion
1

Add coconut oil to a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté the onions & garlic for a few minutes until fragrant & softened. Increase heat to medium-high, add steak. Let it brown about 4 minutes, toss with tongs a few times to brown each side. Add coconut milk, red curry paste & salt to the pan.

2

Combine everything well. Cook uncovered for another 5 minutes and the sauce will thicken.

Assemble the tacos. Lay tortillas out, top with lettuce, steak, avocado & green onion. Serve immediately. If there is extra sauce in the pan be sure to spoon some on top!
