Korean Beef Tacos with Sriracha Mayo – Easy and Unique!

Korean Beef Tacos

Everyone, myself included, loves a great taco. I am always open to making and trying different types of tacos. The other day, I was having an internal struggle because I really wanted some tacos, but I was also craving some super flavorful Korean beef. I decided to marry the two things and make something delicious that I am wondering why I never did this before. These Korean Beef Tacos are incredibly quick and easy to make and they have a delicious sriracha lime mayo drizzled on top. I like to top mine with some fresh cilantro and red onion and also some crisp kimchi for an extra kick of flavor.

Here are some tips for making this dinner with ground beef:

  • The amount of sriracha in the sriracha mayo is fully customizable. If you like it really spicy, go ahead and add more. If you are a little more sensitive to spice, you can reduce the amount used. You do you!
  • The same applies to the chili paste. I honestly use at least triple of what I recommend in this recipe. We REALLY like spicy food, so I am always taking it to the extreme. Absolutely limit the amount you use, or even leave it out if you really don’t like spicy food.
  • You can make this recipe even easier by making the sriracha mayo and even the soy sauce mixture ahead of time. If you do this, you can just cook the beef and allow it to simmer when you are almost ready to eat. This will allow you to have dinner ready even faster!
