This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mission®. All opinions are entirely my own. Korean Pork Bulgogi Fusion Taco. A great way to serve pork bulgogi at your table using fresh tortillas. Topped with, cilantro, mango, lime, red cabbage, and jalapeno. You can add salsa and/or cowboy caviar on the side, but it has a lot of taste on its own. These Korean tacos are perfect for a party or any dinner night.
This Korean Pork Bulgogi Fusion Taco recipe is so flavorful! I marinated the pork meat overnight, but you can also do it quickly in just about 20 minutes. The marinade sauce recipe contains soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, rice vinegar and black pepper.
I served the Korean Pork Bulgogi Fusion Taco on warmed Mission Organics® Tortillas that I purchased from my local Sprouts market. I am a big fan of Mexican food, especially tacos and burritos. I often make tacos at home because it’s a fun, fast food for kids that my husband and I enjoy just as much. Recently when I’ve made my own homemade Mexican recipes I’ve been using tortillas from Mission brand as they have a high quality, freshly baked taste. They taste great in all kinds of meals and snacks, even for a quick quesadilla. The Mission Organics Tortillas is a new product line to the market. It's non-GMO Project Verified, USDA Organic Certified, and available in three varieties: flour, white corn or whole wheat. You can find these products in the tortilla section. For best taste, these tortillas should be warmed up before consuming.
On a final note, I wanted to share a quick thought or two on fusion food. For me, it’s very exciting, with new tastes coming together that even just ten or twenty years back weren’t even imagined together. With America becoming a melting pot of different cultures and the internet also bringing people together from all corners of the world, the food is following suit and it is a very cool thing! I really enjoy and seek out fusion food whenever traveling to new places. I recently took a trip to San Francisco and had a lot of fusion food there, some of which was outstanding and some which just didn’t work for me. Even on the meals, I didn’t like, I do appreciate the chefs taking risks. I think those home chefs should venture into this fusion space more often, and simple recipes like this Korean taco recipe is a great place to start. I personally grew up on Asian food and now live in Southern California where just about everybody eats Mexican food …it’s just so darn good! In this case, fusion taco was between two very familiar flavors. What are some fusion foods that you like to cook?
