  • Quick Kimchi Slaw
  • 1/2 head of cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1/4 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup green onion sliced
  • 1 carrot julienned (or just use a peeler and make it into a pile of peelings)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tsp sriracha Asian hot chilli sauce

  • Sriracha Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha (Asian hot chilli sauce)
  • 12 corn tortillas warmed
  • Coriander for garnish chopped


  • 1. In a small bowl combing the soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, ginger, oyster sauce and sesame seeds. Stir to combine. Slice the meat into thin strips, being sure to slice against the grain of the meat. Put the meat into the marinade and refrigerate at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.
  • 2. Make the slaw by combining all ingredients in a large tupperware or bowl with a lid. Give it a good shake to make sure everything is well combined. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
  • 3. Stir the sriracha into the sour cream.
  • 4. Cook the meat just before serving. Heat a skillet over high heat until it is piping hot. Pour the meat and marinade into the hot pan and cook, stirring things around constantly until all the meat is cooked. This will only take 3-5 minutes. If you want to be more authentic then cook it on an outdoor grill.
  • 5. Serve by placing meat onto a warmed corn tortilla, topping with a strained, heaping spoonful of the kimchi slaw, and a dash of the sriracha sour cream. Garnish with a little coriander.
