  1. LOVED THIS! I cooked just as recipe says and served it with coleslaw, avocados and fresh mangos! So good…ate it for dinner, breakfast and lunch!!

  2. I was just curious how it’s recommended we eat the meat? Soft corn taco shells? I appreciate Terri’s comment about what she ate with it! I just froze this meal a few days ago and it smelled FABULOUS, I can’t wait to cook it!!!!

    1. Hi! I have used corn tortillas for serving, but you could serve in taco shells, over baked sweet potatoes, on quinoa or rice or on wide rice noodles. Other options are as a hot sandwich filling in gf moo shu wrappers (…, gf french bread (… or on toasted gf hamburger buns (…. I also sautéed some bok choy and kale, heated some of the meat (left over from dinner) and had that for breakfast with a peach one morning. Yum! Hope those ideas help. 🙂

  3. I never thought I would see “Korean” and “Tacos” in the same recipe title. But the marinade does sound delicious!

  4. Not a fan of jalapenos. Never have been. Hubby likes them so he can serve his as a side but could you do a can of hatch green chiles instead? Or just leave them out?

  5. I only put one jalapeño and could barley taste it…but over all it was very good and I will be making it again!

    1. Thanks for the feedback, JanJan! I like my spicy foods to be relatively intense in heat, so if you fall a little more in that camp you could use a Serrano pepper to give it more kick. It’s a couple notches above the Jalapeño heat wise on the Scoville Scale….

  6. Since this recipe is on one of your paleo freezer menus, you should probably have a disclaimer that the soy sauce and corn tortillas are NOT paleo friendly and should be substituted.

    1. Dusty, we’re aware of that – this recipe is not tagged as Paleo and if it is on a Paleo menu we’d like to correct that. Which menu are you referencing? Thank you!

  7. It calls for 3 freezer bags. How do you split up, and why? Then do you recombine all when cooking? Also, do you defrost first? (That last part about defrosting is a question I have on all freezer to crockpot recipes, actually.)

    1. Since this recipe is for 12 servings you might like to put 4 servings in each bag. See step 2 on the second set of directions. You can recombine if you like but unless you’re seving 12 people it’s like not necessary. Yes, you will want to thaw in the fridge. In regard to your general question about thawing crockpot freezer meals it depends on the recipe. The documents our members receive include thaw instructions. If you have more questions, we’d love to chat with you in the bottom right-hand corner.

  8. This is still in the Paleo Spring Menu, despite being mentioned 6 months ago as not compliant. It’s really tough to use your site if your recipes are categorized correctly, and aren’t fixed even 6 months after being notified of the error.

    1. Erica,
      You are correct, that is disappointing. I am not sure how that recipe got on that menu in the first place as it is not tagged as a Paleo recipe in our database. It should not have taken us 6 months to make the change and we are sorry that it did. We are working for better processes to ensure this type of mistake doesn’t continue to happen.
