Everybody likes tacos so here’s one with a bit of a twist, it’s made with pulled beef that is flavored with a teriyaki sauce and topped with a roasted avocado, crumbled feta cheese, onion and fresh cilantro.

The combination with feta cheese and teriyaki sauce might some a bit unusual but it really works great, I’ve picked it up from a friend who used to make noodles with beef, teriyaki sauce and feta cheese and been doing it every since.

The meat

First the meat, (if you haven’t bought it pre-made), season a piece of beef with salt and pepper and roast in the oven on low to medium heat until it’s tender enough to be pulled, you can add a bit of water in the bottom of the pan while cooking to keep the meat moist. This is usually a step that is good to make a day ahead.

Once the meat is done pull it into strips and heat in a pot, add teriyaki sauce the way you normally would add BBQ-sauce. You want the pulled beef to be slightly creamy and moist with a clear taste of the teriyaki. Seat aside and keep warm.

The vegetables

Slice the onion, chop the cilantro, crumble the feta cheese. Split the avocado and remove the pit, then cut it into four wedges, brush the avocado with olive oil and roast in a hot pan for a few seconds.

Plating

Heat the tortilla and put on a plate, put a bit of pulled beef in the middle, top with avocado, onion and sprinkle the feta cheese and cilantro on top. Eat.
