Sweet Beef Tacos & Le Creuset Giveaway

These sweet beef tacos are brought to you by Le Creuset. So these tacos turned out more amazing then I could have imagined, the meat is spicy, sweet and smokey which is pretty much the trifecta of perfection according to me. They are really easy to customize your specific diet needs, you could use lettuce wraps as your taco shell, or load everything on top of a sweet potato or load everything into a bowl. It was really simple to throw together the FIVE (yes, only five) ingredients into your le creuset Dutch oven and then reheat the meat in my brand new Le Creuset non-stick pan. I used it for the first time for this recipe and they surpassed all of my expectations, I kind of accidentally burnt some of the meat I was reheating but the burnt parts washed off with ease!

First we brown the beef chuck roast on all sides to sear in all the goodness. Next mix the salsa, maple syrup, green chilies and smoked paprika together and pour over the roast. Once it has been cooked shred meat and serve or save for later. Meanwhile slice up red peppers, yellow onion and start cooking in your pan. Chop up avocado, red cabbage, tomatoes and limes. For the dressing blend together avocado oil, lime juice, cilantro, rice vinegar and dates. Add the meat to the pan to crisp it up a bit and serve.

Like I said above, these Le Creuset pans are a dream, they are super heavy duty and slick, I barely had to use any oil for my peppers. So many of my readers ask me what kind of cooking pans I suggest and these are going to be my new favorite. They don’t flake like most other non-stick pans and get dangerous chemicals in your food. I’ll keep updating you all how they wear and tear after heavy use 😉 I’m guessing they will be good since it says it has a lifetime guarantee. Oh and did I mention they are oven safe??

Toppings of choice with Sweet Cilantro Dressing.
