preparation

Cucumber Kimchi Instructions:

Mix the sliced cucumbers and red onions together.

In a separate bowl mix the rice wine vinegar, salt, agave nectar (1tsp), cayenne pepper, and the red pepper flakes. Pour the mixture over the mix of cucumbers and onions and let sit until the onions soften, approximately 5-10 minutes

Slaw Instructions:

Whisk together lime juice, soy sauce (4tblsp), sesame oil, agave nectar, paprika, and cayenne pepper until well combined.

Add cabbage and scallions and toss lightly to coat well.

Beefless Tips Instructions:

To prepare the sauce for the beefless tips mix together the plum sauce, soy sauce (4 tblsps), sesame oil (3 tsps), peanut oil, and cornstarch.

Use the vegetable oil to sauté beefless tips until well caramelized on all sides, approximately 3 – 4 minutes. Then pour the sauce over the beefless tips and cook until sauce thickens and sticks to the beefless tips.

How to Assemble:

In a non-stick pan heat the tortillas over medium heat until hot and lightly caramelized, approximately 10 – 20 seconds

Fill each tortilla with the beefless tips, slaw and cucumber kimchi. Serve with a side of kim chi.

Chef’s Tip:
When preparing the slaw add additional cayenne pepper to taste for that extra kick!
