(Someday when I have time on my hands again, I will learn how to take a good food picture–people who have ‘real’ food blogs have an amazing talent!!)

Do you enjoy grilling and bbq’s as much as I do in the summer? There is nothing better than a crisp salad for dinner or a grilled piece of meat for a quick summer meal. Well, this recipe is one of our families ALL time favorite recipes and it combines grilled steak with a coleslaw and it is AMAZING!!! After we ate this for dinner the other night I turned to my husband and said, “tell me this was not the best meal I have EVER made!” He said it was pretty close to the best–that is saying a lot.

I originally got this recipe from another food blog, but I feel I TOTALLY kicked this recipe up a notch. Here is my ‘revised’ version of the FABULOUS Thai Steak Tacos:

Thai Steak Tacos with Cilantro Slaw
Steak
  1. 2 T sugar
  2. 3 t. ginger powder
  3. 1 t. sweet chili sauce (I made my own jalapeno jelly that works GREAT in this recipe--you can get the recipe on this blog, it's the one with the coconut shrimp)
  4. 1/2 t freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  6. 1/2 c. lime juice (I like fresh)
  7. 4 T. rice vinegar
  8. 1 T. Montreal Steak Seasoning
  9. A few shakes of sesame oil
  10. 3 lbs. boneless steak, trimmed (top sirloin works great--watch for it to go on sale 🙂
Cole Slaw
  1. 1/2 c fresh lime juice
  2. 1/3-1/2 c. sugar (depending how sweet you like it)
  3. 4 T rice wine vinegar
  4. 2 1/2 t ginger powder (or fresh)
  5. 1 1/2 t sesame oil
  6. 1/2 t sweet chili sauce
  7. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  8. 1/2 c. mayonnaise (I used fat free)
  9. Salt & pepper
  10. 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)
  11. 2 c. carrots, cut into matchsticks
  12. 1/4 c sliced green onions
  13. 1/2 c chopped fresh cilantro
Remaining Ingredients
  1. 10-12 (6-inch) flour tortillas
