tablespoon(s) rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper flakes
tablespoon(s) low-sodium soy sauce
teaspoon(s) low-sodium soy sauce
small (about 1 pound) cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
medium carrot, cut into matchsticks
tablespoon(s) light brown sugar
clove(s) garlic, very finely chopped
tablespoon(s) grated fresh ginger
pound(s) (85 percent lean) ground beef
tablespoon(s) canola oil
small onion, finely chopped
small flour tortillas, warmed


1. In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, red pepper, and 2 teaspoons soy sauce. Add the cabbage and carrot and toss to combine. Let sit, tossing occasionally, for 15 minutes or until ready to serve.

2. Meanwhile, in a second bowl, combine the sugar, garlic, ginger, and remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Add the beef and mix to combine.

3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the beef mixture, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.

4. Fill the tortillas with the beef and top with the slaw.

Tips & Techniques:

"Buying ground beef in bulk is much cheaper. I place 1/2-pound portions in freezer bags, flatten, and stack to freeze. The flat packs defrost in no time instead of taking all afternoon," says Jaden Hair.
