Corned Beef Tacos (yes you read that right!)

This should be on my Fire Station Fridays posts. I got this recipe from my husband of course and it is my new favorite taco. The only way to make it work is to not have it too salty. To do this you must boil the meat 3 times to get some of the salt out.


2 pounds corned beef
1 bunch of parsley
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cloves minced garlic
1 small onion chopped
corn tortillas

Place meat in large pot and cover with water. Boil 3 times for 20 minutes replacing the water each time. This helps remove some of the salt. Then place in crock pot with onion and garlic for 6 hours until meat becomes very tender and easy to shred. Shred corned beef and remove any fat. Toss meat with cheese and parsley. Place serving size amounts on each tortilla and place on cookie sheet. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees just until cheese melts within meat and tortillas shells are warm. Remove and add cabbage, more cheese if preferred, and salsa. Serve and Enjoy.
You can also heat a little oil and fry the tortillas before placing them in the oven.
Don't forget to enter into my special seasoning giveaway. Alpine Touch is a great addition to your spice cabinet and difficult to obtain. As far as I know you can only get it in Wyoming, Montana, or have it shipped like I did. Good luck!


  1. It has been so long since I have had corned beef. I used to cook it all the time for my mother and had to boil and change the water forever and ever. But it is so tasty. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I did a corned beef last year for St Patrick's Day of course -

    I might just have to do one sooner!

    They look REALLY good!

  3. My husband would probably like this. Me, not so much. I HATE corned beef. My mom would make it every year for St Patrick's Day. Blech.

  4. I love corned beef... Never knew how it was made though. These look great!

  5. What a nice twist.. They do look great.... fabulous even. I have not had corned beef since my lade Ruben Sandwich.... = )

  6. Yummy! This would go down a treat with my two testosterone carnivores! Have a great day!

  7. Ingenious Kasha! Thank your husband for this inspiring recipe.

    I haven't had corned beef in ages. I may just have to fire up that crock pot of mine and give it a try. I'm going shopping tomorrow. Hmmm...maybe I'll fire up the other one and make it a Corned Beef Fiesta!!!

    Thanks for sharing...
