First, you're going to want to start by putting your pan on a low medium heat and adding your olive oil so it can heat up. When your oil is ready, add your Be’f Tips to the pan and let them cook on all sides for 5 minutes with an occasional stir. Now you are going to sprinkle garlic powder all over your Be’f Tips and let them cook for another 3 minutes with an occasional stir.
While your Be’f Tips are cooking, you are going to wash your mushrooms and dice them. Now that you have your mushrooms diced, add them to your pan along with your black olives. Add your seasoning and let your mix cook on medium heat for 7–10 minutes, with an occasional stir. (If your mix looks dry add 1 tbs of butter, and give a stir.)
Now you are going to make your sauce. Heat your sauce pan to medium heat and insert a stick of butter into your saucepan. When your butter is completely melted, you are going to add your seasoning plus about 3-5 tbs of brown sugar and give it a continuous stir. When your sauce reaches a boiling point, let it cook for 10-15 minutes with an occasional stir. While your sauce is cooking, transfer your be’f mix from the frying pan to a baking pan. Now you can drizzle your sauce onto your be’f mix and give it a good stir, ensuring that your sauce has completely covered your be’f mix.
(preheat your oven to 350)
To simmer your sauce into your be’f mix, cover your baking pan with aluminum foil and place the pan into the oven when the max temperature is reached. Let your mix cook for 30 minutes and remove it when the timer goes off. (If you are not using the warm up packet rice, now would be the time to cook your rice.)
Turn your stove burner onto medium high heat and insert a small slice of butter. When the butter is melted, dip the front and back of your tortilla into the butter using a circle motion and let both sides cook to your preferred browning. (Now is the time when you should warm up your rice.)
When you're done cooking your tortillas, put them on a plate and dress them. I like to put my be’f mix in the middle, my rice on one side, and my cilantro on the opposite side of my rice. Cut up a lime into four pieces and you're done. To enjoy your taco, squeeze 1/4 of your lime onto your taco and enjoy. (don't forget to take a bite out of your lime while chewing on your taco.)
