Japanese Steak Tacos with Sriracha Slaw


Grace Dale, Writer



  • 1 Lime
  • 10 oz. Steak Strips
  • 2 tsp. Sriracha
  • 6 Small Flour Tortillas
  • 4 oz. Slaw Mix
  • 1 Shallot
  • 0.84 oz. Mayonnaise
  • 2 oz. Teriyaki Glaze.

So now after you have those ingredients, what you have to do next is peel and halve (cut in half) the shallot. Slice the halves into thin strips. Halve the lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Next, you have to take a mixing bowl and combine shallots, and one Tbsp. of lime juice. Reserve the rest for slaw. Next, what you are going to do is add 1 tbsp of water and then set it aside for at least 10 minutes. In another mixing bowl combine Mayo and half of the Sriracha packet if you would like. Add one teaspoon of the remaining lime juice then you can set it aside. Then we move on to the meat, heat 2 tsp of olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add steak strips to the hot pan and stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees for 4-6 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in teriyaki glaze and add the remaining Sriracha (to taste). While the steak strips cook, wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm for 30-60 seconds. Then all you have to do now is garnish the tacos with the extras and you are done.  

I think that these tacos were good. I really like it because I put a little bit of Slaw and pickled shallots and then I put a little bit of lime juice on it, which made it taste really good and had a nice flavor. It kind of boosted the flavor and gave it that tang. I hope that you all make this at home sometimes because I thought that it was very good and that it’s a great dinner or even lunch if you wanted. This is an easy dinner or lunch to make it only takes about 15 minutes, so if you are in a hurry then this is the meal to go to. This dish has a little kick and I don’t love spicy food but I could still eat it so I think it would be ok for people that can’t always eat spicy food. I would say that it’s mild.
