These Korean Beef Tacos are a Simple Way to Level Up Taco Night

Spice up dinner with Korean beef tacos!

A simple seasoning swap turns taco night into something really special. This recipe is kissed with a Korean flare.

Wendy Paul shares a quick and easy weeknight dinner winner that boasts plenty of flavor. The sauce is really the key to that Korean-inspired flavor. Top each taco with kimchi and sesame seeds to layer on the flavor fusion.


Korean Beef Tacos

Prepare your sauce & topping first. This recipe is fast!



  • 2 tbsp. diced green onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp. ginger
  • 3 tbsp. avocado oil
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar

Mix together, set aside.

Kimchi Topping

  • 1 cup kimchi, drained and diced
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil

Mix together, set aside.

  • 1 lb. ground lean ground beef
  • 12 corn tortillas, warmed and browned
  • Cilantro
  • Sesame seeds
  • Limes, quartered
  • Red onion, diced (optional)


  1. In a large skillet, brown your ground beef, and when there is just a little pink left, add the sauce and stir together 1-2 minutes. Turn off your heat and let the flavors marinate.
  2. Assemble your tacos.
  3. Using 2 corn tortillas, warmed and browned slightly, add a scoop of cooked taco meat, a little bit of the kimchi mixture, some cilantro and sesame seeds (you can also add the diced red onion.)
  4. Garnish with some sesame seeds, limes.
  5. We love to serve ours with rice, and a big salad.
