Now, don’t misunderstand us here – these are spiced beef tacos, and opposed to spicy. Just because there isn’t a load of chilli here doesn’t mean these tacos aren’t super tasty. But feel free to add your own hot sauce if you’re a heat seeker!

Heat the butter in a large frying pan over a high heat for 1-2 minutes, or until melted and darkened in colour. Add the diced beef and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until just browned. Cooking the beef in browned butter helps it cook quickly whilst remaining tender in the middle.
