Food Trucks, Please Come to Western Mass -- Korean Beef Bulgogi

If you've been reading this for a while, you may remember my little jaunt over to the west coast for my first ever trip to Los Angeles. On my to-do list were way too many things to complete in just five days. Sadly, tracking down the Koji truck was one of the list items that did not get completed. In fact, none of the food I ate came from a truck (though I did have some excellent fast food).

Step one, make the sauces: one for the marinade,
one for the slaw

Aside from the Herrell's Magic Truck, Western Mass is seriously lacking in the vehicle-food department, so it doesn't look like I'll be buying any Korean-Mexican-Fusion food anytime soon. That's why I'm thrilled that Andrea over at Can You Stay For Dinner had such an excellent, EASY recipe in her archives! I've gushed about her blog before, and made at least five of her recipes, but I can't remember if I've actually blogged one.

Chop veggies for slaw
Seriously it's so simple, it tastes fresh and summery and if I close my eyes and think real hard I can almost feel that California sunshine on my face again. I will return to you, someday...

Marinade beef, grill beef to medium rare, slice beef
This recipe is pretty much the same exact thing she came up with, so all credit goes to her. In fact, go to her recipe because I don't feel 100% comfortable posting it verbatim, heh. So go here please and cook these amazing Korean taco things! The only adjustments I made were adding red onions and lime juice to the slaw, and subbing in yellow peppers for some added color--it's a rainbow of a slaw, I wish I had a better camera on hand to do it justice. These are absolutely flavorful with just the right amount of spice--and I love spice.

After chilling slaw, assemble tacos

Enjoy the pics... they were deeelicious.

Also, much thanks to my lovely boyfriend for helping with the grilling :)
