Garlic Beef/Chicken Tacos

This is another recipe that is easy and great for someone who doesn't want to be in the kitchen too long. Good for a weekend snack and should definitely be a crowd pleaser. Be creative if you are not a meat eater like myself. My go to meat substitute is Tofu, or some other vegan meat substitute that may be found in some supermarkets.

  • 2 Tbsp. butter
