More Beef Cheek Tacos with Sriracha Sauce on my Fancy Cooker

Kind friend Tristan gave me the heads up about a hot sauce that I had not tried... Sriracha Hot Sauce. (Thanks again Tristan!:))
I was able to find the sauce this weekend and gave it a taste test on some beef cheek tacos.

How I cook the beef cheeks .

I used the fancy cooker ( a section of pipe with rebar legs, expanded metal top and the burner from an old hot water heater).



Heated a few onions and peppers in the pan...





When the veggies were ready I added the beef cheek meat....





Then warmed the tortillas on the side.

This was self serve style, grabbed a paper towel, tortilla, meat and headed for the hot sauce...



I wasn't sure if the Sriracha would be too hot for me. I'm not a hot hot sauce person.... but it was great! Had some heat to it but also had a nice "chili" flavor that I liked.



I tried a second one with Cholula Chili Garlic and Hula Girl Jalapeno....they were not as hot as the Sriracha but were tasty too.



Thanks again Tristan, the Sriracha was great....I owe ya!

Sounds tasty! Don't think I'll find beef cheeks around here anytime soon but the Sriracha I've been using in Pad Thai(or however it's spelled) for some time now. Your right, nice flavor without the smokin' heat. Another Chris

Try Googling "Obsessive Chef pad thai" and you'll get a recipe that's both easy and pretty tasty.
