- Combine sliced flank steak and cabbage slaw and serve on warm pita wraps.
Freshly made I would give solid 4 stars. However, I thought it was MUCH better left over using COLD cabbage slaw with the hot meat. Next time will make the slaw ahead allow to cool. Added one habenero to slaw mix for some nice heat, used pre packaged slaw mix that had carrots in it. Also used small size flour tortillas as wrap. 5 stars with cold slaw, made it to my 2011 favorites cookbook.
This makes for a wonderful tasting wrap. Grew some awesome pots of Kung Pao peppers this year and used in place of the jalapeno, only used 1/4 cup of cilantro subbing the rest with parsley (family preference - am thinking in due time they will love it as much as I) Other than that made as posted resulting in delicious wraps - we enjoyed and look forward to making it again - soon. Made this for the Cookathon in memory of Sharon 123's husband.
This is delicious! I used a large strip loin steak in place of flank and made the steaks in a pan, and to make things easier I used packaged shredded coleslaw mix, I was out of fresh ginger so I had to use 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder, this was thoroughly enjoyed by my son and I am going to give this a try next time using chicken breast in place beef, thanks for sharing Shar!
