Yield
4 servings (serving size: 2 tacos)

Tacos go Asian with crunchy cabbage slaw and steak flavored with ginger and fish sauce. Packaged coleslaw and matchstick carrots speed preparation. Serve with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs, if desired.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare steak, combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add steak to bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes, turning occasionally.

Step 2

Prepare grill or broiler.

Step 3

Remove steak from bag; discard marinade. Place steak on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.

Step 4

To prepare slaw, combine juice and next 6 ingredients (through 2 garlic cloves) in a large bowl. Add slaw and next 3 ingredients (through cilantro); toss well to combine.

Step 5

Divide steak evenly among tortillas; spoon about 1/2 cup slaw onto each tortilla. Fold in half; serve immediately.

Great flavor! Prepared earlier in the day to let flavors come together more. Served with steamed edamame. Will definitely make again.

One of the best meals I've ever made. Fresh and just a little spicy, with a beautiful balance of textures, colours and flavours. The only changes I made were to use pot roast chunks that I broiled then sliced (they were on sale) a little RealLemon with the lime, (my limes weren't as juicy as I thought they'd be), I omitted the green onions (forgot them) and added about a tablespoon of coconut oil to the slaw. Can't wait to test this out on the boyfriend =)

Every time I ask my husband for "requests" for the weekly menu, he says "THAI TACOS" before I even finish my sentence. I put the steak in the marinade in the morning and keep it in the fridge all day. I also make the slaw in the morning because it is so yummy when it has had a chance to meld all day. The slaw will seem "dry" when you first make it but it will create its own moisture as it sits in the fridge covered all day. I have made this recipe about a dozen times in the last two years and it never disappoints.

Excellent recipe! Great tastes. I loved the combination of lime juice, fish sauce and cilantro along with the flank steak.

Bright fresh flavors, we loved this dish. I agree with other posters that the marinade was a bit dry so I added the juice of 1 lime as well. I served this as tacos but you could easily cut down on the carbs by serving the meat on the slaw as a salad.

Our family loved this. Nice change from regular tacos. We thought the slaw was great and would be good with other things as well, like fish. Will make this again and again.
