Cook Time: 10 min

Ingredients:

STEAK:
1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (add more if you like it spicy!)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound flank steak, trimmed

SLAW:
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups packaged angel hair slaw
2 cups packaged matchstick-cut carrots
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

REMAINING INGREDS.
Eight 6-inch fat-free flour tortillas

Directions:

1. To prepare steak: Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add steak to bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes, turning occasionally.

2. Prepare grill or broiler.

3. Remove steak from bag; discard marinade. Place steak on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 5 minute on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.

4. To prepare slaw, combine juice and next 6 ingredients (through 2 garlic cloves) in a large bowl. Add slaw and next 3 ingredients (though cilantro); toss well to combine.

5. Divide steak evenly among tortillas; spoon about 1/2 cup slaw onto each tortilla. Fold in half; serve immediately.
