teriyaki beef tacos w/ ginger-miso slaw & sriracha

beef teriyaki tacos ginger-miso slaw

Ohhh these were good. I marinated the beef strips for about 3 days and they turned into little pieces of sweet candy after grilling them.
Incredibly easy to throw together. The sauce for the slaw I got from whole foods. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what to do with it--make a nice crunchy slaw for a beef teriyaki taco. Don't you love how you find one special food item and instantly you figure out a fabulous meal from it? Love when that happens.
Can you do this with chicken, fish, tofu? Yes! Please do. I bet the fish would be amazing tasting, just make sure you grill it. Teriyaki anything is better grilled don't you think?
Please make sure to top off the tacos with sriracha sauce. OK?
These cook fast; 3 minutes per side for medium.
I know the outside looks burnt, it's not, just the grilling turns the teryaki marinade dark and sweet. The inside is nice and juicy and tender.

That ginger-miso dressing I found at Whole Foods in the refrigerated section over by the lettuce. It's really good. Great on plain salads too. Any bottled ginger-miso dressing will do. If you can't find one, here is a good homemade ginger-miso dressing recipe from Chow. I marinated the filet strips for 3 days; they were like candy after I grilled them, so good. The marinade will turn the beef a dark color, don't be alarmed.

print recipe

2-3 filet mignons sliced medium-thin thickness (or use whatever protein you desire)
¾- 1 cup of soy sauce
1 & ½ TB of chopped garlic
3 TB of fresh ginger root, chopped
¼ cup plus 2 TB packed dark brown sugar
2-3 TB honey
Couple dashes of ground black pepper

Flour tortillas or plain naan bread, warmed
Sriracha sauce
Fresh limes, optional

ginger-miso slaw:
A couple cups of your favorite chopped slaw or broccoli slaw
About ¾ - 1 cup of ginger-miso salad dressing (found at whole foods)
Note: any bottled ginger-miso dressing will do. If you can't find any, you can make your own using this recipe from Chow.

Cook notes: If you want it spicy, just add a few pinches of red chili pepper flakes to the marinade. That ginger-miso dressing I found at Whole Foods in the refrigerated section over by the lettuce. It's really good. Great on plain salads too. I marinated the filet strips for 3 days; they were like candy after I grilled them, so good. The marinade will turn the beef a dark color, don't be alarmed.

For the beef:
Mix all ingredients in a glass or ceramic dish. Mix well until sugar is dissolved. Then add in beef strips. Cover and place in fridge. Every 3 hours turn beef over. Marinade at least 5 hours or longer.
When ready to eat just grill until done, about 3-4 minutes each side for med-rare.

For the slaw:
Mix all ingredients, Taste-test, then let chill in fridge.

Assemble:
Warm up tortillas, fill with slaw, then grilled beef, then drizzle with sriracha sauce.

Makes about 4-6 good size tacos.
