Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe. They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • Choose a beef chuck roast that is well marbled for maximum flavor and tenderness.
  • If you don't want to use honey, you can substitute brown sugar for a similar sweet flavor.

  • Substitute honey with maple syrup for a more subtle sweetness. Maple syrup is a healthier alternative to honey and has a more subtle sweetness that will not overpower the other flavors in the dish.
  • Substitute jalapeno pepper with bell pepper for a milder flavor. Bell pepper is milder than jalapeno pepper and will provide a more subtle flavor to the dish without overpowering the other flavors.

Greek Beef Tacos In The Crock Pot Replace the sesame oil with olive oil and the jalapeno pepper with a pinch of oregano. Replace the honey (or brown sugar) with honey and the soy sauce with Greek yogurt. Replace the rice wine vinegar with red wine vinegar and the tortillas with pita bread. Serve with feta cheese, olives, and diced tomatoes as optional toppings.

Spicy Roasted Potatoes: Roasted potatoes seasoned with chili powder, garlic powder, and paprika. This dish is the perfect accompaniment to the tacos, as the spicy potatoes will provide a nice contrast to the sweet and savory flavors of the tacos.

Grilled Corn Salad: Fresh grilled corn mixed with red onion, cherry tomatoes, and cilantro, and tossed with a lime vinaigrette. This salad adds a light and refreshing flavor to the meal, and its sweetness complements the spicy potatoes and tacos perfectly.

Wonderful! A delicious aroma greeted me as I came home from work. All I had to do was get out the tortillas, coleslaw, and shred the beef (easy and quick), and Voila, a tasty dinner that everyone enjoyed. I saved the sliced jalapeno to use as an optional topping and that worked very well. Thank you!

This is fast and easy to put into the crock pot -- a huge plus on a busy day. The meat shredded wonderfully and was a little sweet and a little spicy (I used the optional jalapeno pepper and I'm glad I did!). Made exactly as directed, with no changes. Good stuff!

I made this two ways...the hubby didn't want it in a tortilla...like normal...so I made him a Korean Beef Rice Bowl...and I enjoyed the tacos...I topped them with chopped green onions... thinly sliced green cabbage...although the purple would have presented better...I sprinkled some sesame seeds with some chopped cilantro on top...yum...I made a nice Sriracha dressing...to add creaminess to the overall meal...we both loved it...the flavors were so different than the norm...made for "FYC" tag game...
