Rach's quick fix for taco night—she loves the hard shell!—is brisket, thick-cut from any deli counter or grocery store.
"The suggested sides listed below I made recently for a carnitas feast," Rach says. "Any rice and canned refried beans are fine sides too with very little effort. I use smoked spiced cooked brisket from Perini Ranch, available online—this was sent to me as a gift, I've used it for 3 meals!—but thick-sliced brisket from the deli is great here."
Heat a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat with oil, 2 turns of the pan, add onions, garlic and chilies, and season with salt and pepper, soften a couple of minutes and add meat, combine, add water or broth and spices and lower heat to simmer to allow all liquid to absorb and brisket to get crispy at edges.
Heat oven to 325˚F. Arrange shells on baking sheet and fill with cheese, bake to golden and cheese melted, fill with chopped brisket, top with taco sauce or salsa verde, lettuce, tomato, onion and jalapeno. Serve with sides or refried beans and rice.
