Day 74 – I guess if anything the “Stay Safe. Stay Home.” has helped me become a bit more creative in my cooking. Before if I didn’t have an ingredient or something I wanted for dinner I or one of the kids could run out to the store and pick it up. I mean we didn’t do this every day but 2 to 3 times a week. Now, we only go to the grocery store about once every other week and we go without an ingredients or item, figure out a work around or make something else if we don’t have something we need or want. We didn’t have an orange for the Caribbean tacos so I used 1/3 cup orange juice. Not quite the same and wished we had the orange zest but we use what we have. I hope you are doing the same. Figuring what works for you!
Verdict: This was a delicious beef taco night. Something a bit different in flavor than regular taco meat and made our house smell really good all day while it was in the slow cooker. Eye of Round tends to be a cheaper, tougher cut of meat but cooking it in the slow cooker on low is the perfect way to make it tender and it will shred easily.
I made a side of rice to go in the tacos to bulk them up a bit. We only had some cheese, onions and sour cream to top the tacos with.
