Ingredients
One tablespoon olive oil
One onion, chopped
Two cloves garlic, chopped
One pound ground beef
Half-cup chopped parsley
Quarter-cup tomato paste
Half-head small green cabbage, shredded
Two medium tomatoes, chopped
One cup fresh cilantro sprigs
Hot sauce (optional)
Tortillas

First, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for about three to four minutes, until it starts to soften. Next, add the garlic and let it cook for about a minute.

Stir in the beef, parsley and tomato paste, as well as half a teaspoon of salt and pepper. Break the meat up with a wooden spoon and allow it to cook until brown, which should take about 10 minutes.

When the mixture is finished cooking, serve in a tortilla along with the cabbage, tomatoes and cilantro. Sprinkle some cheese on top, and add hot sauce if you'd like to give it a bit of a kick. It's a simple recipe that your family may soon beg you to make again and again!
