Think outside the box. No, not outside that wonderful box of ingredients and instructions we send you every week. That's the good box. We're asking you to think outside that box that says tacos have certain flavors and ingredients. Tacos are too versatile for such a limited vision! Here, we've coated steak strips in tangy-sweet teriyaki and Sriracha and topped them with a spicy slaw and pickled cucumbers and shallots, for an extra-exciting not-so-square crunch. Think outside the box, and then make sure this meal goes inside your box. Tip: Want the best shave for your cucumber? Shave to the seeds, then rotate the cucumber.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Customize It Instructions
If using flank steak, follow same instructions.
If using diced chicken, pat dry. Follow same instructions as steak strips in Step 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.
If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as steak strips in Step 4, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.
If using ground beef, follow same instructions as steak strips in Step 4, breaking up beef until no pink remains and beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.
Prepare the Ingredients
Peel cucumber and, using peeler, shave into long ribbons, stopping when you reach seeds. Discard end. Having trouble making ribbons? Feel free to instead cut cucumber into ¼" rounds.
Peel and halve shallot. Slice halves into thin strips.
Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.
Spread steak strips into a single layer and pat dry.
Pickle the Vegetables
Combine cucumber ribbons, shallot, 1 Tbsp. lime juice (reserve remaining for slaw), and 1 Tbsp. water in a mixing bowl. Toss to coat. Set aside at least 10 minutes.
Make the Slaw
In another mixing bowl, combine slaw mix, mayonnaise, half the Sriracha (to taste, reserve remaining for steak strips), and 1 tsp. remaining lime juice. Set aside.
Cook Steak Strips and Warm Tortillas
Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add steak strips to hot pan and stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes.
Remove from burner. Stir in teriyaki glaze and remaining Sriracha (to taste). Rest, 3 minutes.
While steak strips cook, place tortillas on a microwave-safe plate, cover with a moist paper towel, and microwave until warm, 30 seconds.
Assemble Tacos and Finish Dish
