Gluten-Free Korean Tacos

Gluten Free Korean Tacos

I’ve been obsessed with the idea of Gluten Free Korean Tacos ever since I was stuck at LAX waiting for a delayed plane last March. Right inside the terminal was a Korean taco truck. Yep, INSIDE the terminal. The smells coming from that truck were amazing! And I am assuming the food was great due to the long lines of people waiting to order.

Alas, there was nothing on the menu that was gluten free. So I grabbed a salad from another spot and sat there watching all those people happily enjoy their Korean tacos – a true Los Angeles fusion of Mexican and Korean street food.

All I can say is I cannot believe it took me so long to decide to come up with my own version of these tacos. AMAZING! (As I write this I will confess to you that I have eaten no less than SIX already!)

The meat is juicy with a slightly sweet undertone from organic brown sugar and when topped with the tangy, sour quick-pickled cabbage slaw and maybe a dash of Sriracha – pure heaven!
