Tacos al Carbon

Just like street tacos, only a bit more healthy than the traditional variety. Drop the carbs and add a healthy option to your tacos.

Taco Meat

  • 1 lb cubed beef
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Taco Assembly

  • 5-6 Romain lettuce cups
  • 1-2 bulbs radishes sliced
  • 1 oz Cotija Cheese crumbled
  • 1 large lime quartered


  • Combine all ingredients (except lettuce) in a sealed bag and marinate at least 30 minutes.
  • On high heat, add a little oil to a fry pan and brown meat in batches. You need to ensure the pan stays how otherwise the meat won't caramelize properly.  
  • Set meat aside and let rest 5-10 minutes before serving.


I recommend serving with chopped white onions, Cotija cheese, radish slices and a squeeze of lime.
