I was introduced to Chicharron de Ribeye tacos by my brother-in-law, who is from Monterrey, Mexico. I had never heard of them before, but when he and I were out to dinner and saw them on the menu, he jumped at them. “If I see Chicharron de Ribeye on the menu, I never don’t order it,” he said.
It’s been a favorite of mine ever since. Crispy beef, creamy guac, simple toppings. Perfect for game day — if that’s your thing, or any time you want a fresh, flavorful bite.
For these tacos, I use Epic Provisions Beef Tallow. Beef tallow is an amazing pantry staple and a great cooking fat to have on hand. Its high smoke point makes it perfect for frying just about anything. I love all of EPIC Provisions’ products, but their cooking fats are what I use the most, by far. I love beef tallow with meats and duck fat with vegetables — so much flavor.
Frying a cube of beef in beef tallow creates such a rich, deep flavor, but the absence of any kind of breading keeps it feeling light, especially with the guac and garnish.
EPIC was founded on the admiration of diets historically rich in quality meat, wholesome vegetables, fruit, nuts, and seeds. Jules and I are also huge fans of their flavor-forward meat snacks. (The Bison Bacon Cranberry Bar is killer.) They’re carb-conscious, grass-fed, and keto-friendly options.

This sounds delicious.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
