Rebecca has a brother who's living in Korea, and when he comes home to visit he brings her amazing Korean ingredients to try out, including the Gochujang paste that's used in this recipe for Slow Cooker Korean Beef Tacos from Foodie with Family.  But no worries if you don't have a family member living in Korea; you can buy the Gochujang paste at any Asian market, or order Gochujang Paste online. Korean tacos are the dish that started the Food Truck craze in Los Angeles a few years ago, and if you read through Rebecca's recipe you can tell these Korean beef tacos made in the CrockPot are going to have amazing flavor.  And doesn't this sound perfect for a Slow Cooker Summer Dinner?
