Thai Beef Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Slaw

Thai Beef Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Slaw from

2 T sugar
3 t. ginger powder
1 t. sweet chili sauce
1/2 t freshly ground pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c. lime juice
4 T. rice vinegar
1 T. Montreal Steak Seasoning
A few shakes of sesame oil
3 lbs. boneless steak, trimmed (top sirloin works great)

Cole Slaw:
1/2 c fresh lime juice
1/3-1/2 c. sugar (depending how sweet you like it)
4 T rice wine vinegar
2 1/2 t ginger powder (or fresh)
1 1/2 t sesame oil
1/2 t sweet chili sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c. mayonnaise (I used fat free)
Salt & pepper
3 c. packaged angel hair slaw (or green cabbage--the cabbage you cut yourself holds up a little better to the sauce-but the package is nice on a busy night)
2 c. carrots, cut into matchsticks
1/4 c sliced green onions
1/2 c chopped fresh cilantro

Remaining Ingredients:
10-12 (6-inch) fat-free flour tortillas (the fresh tortillas from Costco are the best with this recipe--they are soft, warm and yummy!!)

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.
2 - Prepare grill or broiler.
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 in to thin slices.
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.
5 - Divide steak evenly among tortillas; spoon about 1/2 c slaw onto each tortilla. Fold in half; serve immediately.
Yield: 6-8
