Korean Street Tacos


Have I mentioned I have a bit of an addiction to Sriracha sauce? I love the flavor and how it can be spicy-hot without being overwhelming. So I'm absolutely thrilled when I come across a new recipe that calls for Sriracha sauce.

I've been trying to reduce the number of condiments in the fridge now for quite some time, but it seems as though its a never ending battle. I never even intended for the Sriracha to be refrigerated, but Tom stuck it in there without me seeing it one day. So, since we are moving soon, I've kept my eye out for any recipes that allow me to use whats open in the fridge and this one just so happened to cover both tasks, my love of Sriracha and m overwhelming desire to use what's left in the bottle.

Marinade Ingredients:
    • 1 lb. flank steak, cut into bite-sized pieces
    • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tbs. sugar
    • 2 tbs. soy sauce
    • 3 tsp. water
    • 2 tsp. sesame oil
    • 2 tsp. mirin
    Dressing Ingredients:
    • 2 tbs. soy sauce
    • 2 tsp. sesame oil
    • 1 tsp. sugar
    • juice of one lime
    • 8 tortillas
    • 1 package coleslaw mix
    • 2 green onions, diced
    • Sriracha sauce

1. Combine the marinade ingredients into a seal-able container. Toss to coat and refrigerate for at least 2 hours but up to 24.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Set aside.
3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the flank steak pieces and cook, stirring frequently for 3-5 minutes or until steak is cooked through. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
4. Add the remaining marinade to the skillet and bring to a boil. Let reduce slightly, then pour over the meat.
5. Wrap the stack of tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for one minute.
6. Add the coleslaw mix to the salad dressing and toss to coat.
7. Spoon some of the meat mixture into each of the tacos, top with the coleslaw mix, green onions and Sriracha sauce.

Oh boy were these tasty! I really enjoyed them! Tom liked them as well but asked me if next time we could have the meat shredded. A little extra work, but I think it would be worth it!


  1. These tacos look amazing! We always have ground beef or chicken for tacos. I've never used flank steak this way, so it would be a nice change from the usual. I think my kids would really love the flavors of the marinade and the dressing.

  2. Tried this recipe and enjoyed it!
