Iamafoodblog's Asian taco recipe draws inspiration from both Vietnamese and Mexican cuisines. The hybrid meal is made from a blend of boneless braised beef that is cut into pieces and garnished with freshly ground pepper. The meat is mixed with chopped onion, oil, shallots and garlic cloves.

Once ready, the braised beef is blended with peeled carrots, crushed tomatoes and a stick of cinnamon. In addition to its exotic cinnamon flavoring, this Asian taco mix also features five additional spices and is mixed with bay leaves -- added for scent -- and a hint of brown sugar and fish sauce.

Once ready, this Vietnamese taco mix is served with tortilla shells and veggie garnishes including chopped cilantro, shallots, green onions and spicy jalapeno peppers.
