Jerk Steak Tacos
Who is ready to FIESTA with these Jerk Tacos!? I can’t even begin to tell you how badly I have been craving a margarita lately so we will just skip over that and go right into tacos!! If I can’t have that sweet liquid gold at least I can have the tastiest jerk steak tacos of life. I mentioned this when I posted my Steak Marsala recipe recently but I have so few steak recipes on this blog it is appalling. But since we have been using Butcher Box we have been grilling up a steak about once a week and always thinking of new ways to enjoy the stuff. The steaks we have gotten from Butcher Box have been so incredible – I didn’t realize the quality was sooooo important to the final taste! When Matt first started grilling their stuff I thought, wow Matt has gotten REALLY GOOD at cooking meat. And while he definitely know how to grill a steak, I think the fact that its perfect every time with Butcher Box steaks says a little something to their quality.
If you don’t know, Butcher Box steaks are 100% grass fed and grass finished, their chicken is free range and organic and their pork is heritage breed. Basically the highest quality meat you can find – oh and it gets delivered frozen to your doorstep, making it the perfect option for these Jerk Tacos. To be honest I wasn’t very good about getting high quality meat before because it was kind of an after thought at the grocery store. Now that this box arrives and my freezer is always stocked, we can just worry about the veggies and other store items when we grocery shop!
A question I get asked a lot about Butcher Box is how long it lasts us. I wish there was an easier answer but this totally depends on your family! A serving for me looks different than a serving for Matt and if you have kids that will change things too. When you go to order the box you can decide what kinds of meat you want in it, how many servings you want and how often you want to get one. I always say to guesstimate to start off them you can go back and adjust your order. The good news is you can’t really order too much because it stays in your freezer anyways! So click here to get your order in, then come back and make these JERK TACOS!!
Jerk Seasoning is my new fave flavor and mixing it with some pineapple salsa was the best decision I have had in awhile!
You can lettuce wrap these if on Whole30, use Siete tortillas if going grain free, or use tortillas like this that are my fave – half corn half wheat from la tortilla factory!
