    so I was at one of our local Mexican markets today and beef shanks were $.98lb, it was cold here today in Chicago so I decided a good crock pot meal would be nice for dinner.

    I'm back home and as I'm browing the shanks on the stove, a thought occurs to me, I'm going to try and make some bulgogi tacos.

    I finish browning the shanks and place them & 1 large sliced onion in the crock pot. Then add some beef stock and Korean bulgogi marinade, cooked the shanks for 5 hours on low until fork tender.

    Shredded the beef and served on tortillas with the soft cooked onions, chopped cilantro, avocado, bean sprouts.

    Delicious!!

    Your dish sounds very tasty!
    Sweet Willie- it sounds like MP might need to add a Cooking & Recipes thread!

    great idea, the only excuse I can make is that I was mid-stream switching what I was doing so didn't think the bulgogi part all the way through. I won't make the same mistake twice!

    When the food is good, I have a tough time remembering to take a photo:D BTW, the leftover meat scrambled with an egg and placed on a tortilla was delicious for breakfast this morning.
