    LilPinkieJ's Note:

    Adobo Beef Tacos with Pickled Red Onions recipe from The Wisconsin Beef Council. This was featured on the morning news cooking segment. I was surprised by how easy it was to find all the ingredients at the regular grocery store. I just checked the international foods aisle for them.

      Well, i would like to suggest some corrections... first it doesn't serve 8, unless they eat very little and a taco per person is enough... so it serves actually 2 persons who eat at least 4 tacos or 4 persons that eat 2 each... For the onions, honey is not used in mexican recipes for this same pickled ones... you boil water and there you add the onions, some salt and some vinegar, you let them cool down and they taste wonderful... please don't take wrong my comments, i do it trying to improve it a little bit :)

      I really liked the rub for the steaks - it was a nice change from marinating. Very flavorful but not too spicy. We didn't like the serving suggestion with the red onions as much. We ended up adding different things: sour cream, shredded cabbage, and salsa, which made the tacos more to our taste. But I will definitely be making the meat this way again!
