Quick pickled veggies add a tangy crunch. If you don't have rice vinegar, you can substitute the same amount of white wine vinegar.


  • 1 medium bowl
  • 1 small bowl
  • 1 large skillet
  • 1 small skillet


  • 6 radishes (thinly sliced)
  • 2 cucumbers (thinly sliced)
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 4 scallions (green parts only, thinly sliced)
  • 1 cup red cabbage (shredded)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (low-sodium, gluten-free)
  • 4 teaspoons sriracha (plus more to serve)
  • ¼ ounce cilantro (chopped)
  • 12 corn tortillas


  • In a medium bowl, combine radish, cucumber, vinegar, sugar (if using), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside, occasionally stirring, until ready to serve.
  • In a small bowl, combine sour cream and a pinch of chili flakes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallion greens and cabbage and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring until softened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the beef and cook, breaking the meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in sesame oil, soy sauce, 2 teaspoons Sriracha, and a pinch of chili flakes to taste.
  • While the beef cooks, heat tortillas on a dry skillet over medium-high heat for about 30 seconds per side.
  • To serve, spread a bit of chili sour cream onto each tortilla. Top with beef, pickled vegetables, cilantro, and as much extra Sriracha and chili flakes as you like.
