Tacos are always good! Especially with boneless beef scoter that melts in the mouth. The homemade coleslaw adds an acidic kick that will balance the sweet side of the Korean sauce!

Ingredients for the tacos

  • 1kg boneless beef scoter, cut in 2 cm strips against the grain
  • Canola oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped

  • In the same skillet, add a small drizzle of oil then cook onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes. Deglaze with the beer then scrape the bottom to grab all the flavours! Pour in the slow cooker.

IPA Américaine des Appalaches, Pit Caribou

Fresh, salty and spicy, these oriental tacos will pair well with this IPA with aromas of citrus and pine which offers a beautiful resinous bitterness. The aromas of coriander will bring even more freshness to this pairing.
