Some days are just bad days. The “I-slept-through-my-alarm” days. The “I-spilled-orange-juice-in-my-lap” days. The “I-stepped-in-old-chewing-gum” days. The “I-put-my-shirt-on-inside-out-and-went-to-the-office-like-that” days. The “I-drove-off-with-my-latte-on-the-car-roof” days.
And on those days, I crave steak tacos.
Don’t ask me how steak tacos became my comfort food of choice. I only ordered my first one within the past year; I grew up with the ground beef variety instead!
But when I sink my teeth into one of those simple soft tacos—just juicy seasoned steak with spicy tomato salsa—the little black raincloud above my head disappears. I smile again. The world will be better tomorrow.
I’m still slightly nervous to cook steak at home (read about my last experience here), so I came up with an alternative that didn’t have to reach 160° on the meat thermometer.
Tofu tacos, with another favorite comfort food: red bell peppers!
