2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and marinate the steaks; make the slaw

  • Set aside half the gochujang for the cooked steaks.
  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. Coat the steaks on both sides with the first half of the gochujang. Let stand while you prepare the slaw and other toppings.

In a medium bowl, toss together the cabbage, honey-lime vinaigrette base, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Prep the remaining taco toppings; toast the cashews

  • Thinly slice the radishes.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
  • Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the cashews.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.

In a dry large frying pan over medium heat, toast the cashews, stirring often, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl, sprinkle with the shichimi togarashi, and toss to coat. Wipe out the pan.


Cook the steaks

In the same pan used for the cashews, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook, turning frequently, until well browned and your desired doneness is reached. For medium-rare, that’s 4 to 6 minutes for New York strips and rib-eyes and 8 to 12 minutes for filet mignons.

Transfer the cooked steaks to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes and drizzle or brush with as much of the reserved gochujang as you like. Thinly slice the steaks. Wipe out the pan if using to warm the tortillas. While the steaks are resting, heat the tortillas.


Warm the tortillas

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in the same pan used for the steaks, warm the tortillas over medium heat, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Set out the tortillas, steaks, slaw, radishes, scallions, cashews, cilantro, and any remaining gochujang. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
