Tacos for dinner is a simple way to get dinner on the table fast, and these quick ones come together in just 15 minutes. The ground beef filling is bursting with flavor thanks to the umami-packed glaze that coats it, a sweet and salty mixture of dark brown sugar and soy sauce, plus rice vinegar for brightness and a little added heat from sriracha. The toppings couldn't be easier, just slice a mini cucumber, sprinkle on some toasted sesame seeds, and pop open a jar of kimchi, a spicy Korean condiment made from fermented cabbage and other vegetables. Dinner is served.


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, sriracha, and 1 tablespoon oil in a small bowl.

  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over high. Add beef; cook, breaking up into small pieces, until browned but not quite cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add soy sauce mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and glazy, 3 to 4 minutes. Spoon beef evenly onto warmed tortillas. Top with kimchi, sesame seeds, cucumber, and, if desired, a drizzle of sriracha.
