Ingredient List

Beef and Marinade

  • 500 g beef top sirloin steak, thinly sliced against the grain
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • 60 ml soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Spicy Salsa

  • 1/2 jar (226 g) Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky Salsa
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce

Coriander Coleslaw

  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 large handful coriander sprigs
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 romaine lettuce, thinly sliced

Tortillas and Garnish

  • 1 pack Old El Paso™ Super Soft Regular Flour Tortillas, heated as directed on pack
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  1. Place the beef and marinade ingredients into a medium bowl or resealable bag and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the spicy salsa ingredients into a blender. Blend on medium speed until smooth then pour into a small bowl and set aside. Mix all the coleslaw ingredients except the lettuce in a large bowl and toss together until combined. Place to one side. Just before serving, combine with the lettuce.
  3. Remove the beef from the marinade and discard the excess liquid. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and cook the beef for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring, until brown.
  4. Spoon the beef onto the warm tortillas, then drizzle with the spicy salsa and top with the coleslaw. Garnish with sesame seeds.
