This recipe features succulent steak, complemented by a unique spicy mushroom salsa, all wrapped in a soft taco shell for a delightful blend of flavors and textures.


For the Steak:

  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (use tamari for a gluten-free option)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes (adjust to taste)

For the Spicy Mushroom Salsa:

  • 2 cups mushrooms, finely chopped (shiitake, oyster, or button mushrooms work well)
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 2 jalapeños, minced (adjust for desired heat level)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Additional Ingredients:

  • Small tortillas (corn or flour, based on preference)
  • Extra cilantro for garnish
  • Lime wedges for serving
  • Optional toppings: sliced avocado, shredded cabbage, or a drizzle of sriracha mayo


Marinating the Steak:

  1. Prepare the Marinade: In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, minced garlic, grated ginger, honey, and chili flakes.
  2. Marinate the Steak: Place the flank steak in a large resealable bag or shallow dish and pour the marinade over it. Ensure the steak is well-coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or up to overnight for deeper flavor.

Making the Spicy Mushroom Salsa:

  1. Prepare the Salsa Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, combine the finely chopped mushrooms, diced red onion, minced jalapeños, chopped cilantro, lime juice, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and set aside for the flavors to meld.

Cooking the Steak:

  1. Grill the Steak: Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade, letting excess drip off. Grill the steak for about 5-6 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until desired doneness. Let it rest for a few minutes before slicing against the grain into thin strips.

Assembling the Tacos:

  1. Warm the Tortillas: Heat the tortillas on the grill or stovetop until warm and slightly charred.
  2. Assemble the Tacos: On each tortilla, place a few slices of steak, top with a generous spoonful of spicy mushroom salsa, and any additional toppings you like.
  3. Serve: Garnish with extra cilantro and serve with lime wedges on the side.


  • Customizing Heat Levels: Adjust the amount of chili flakes in the marinade and the jalapeños in the salsa according to your heat preference.
  • Tortilla Choice: For a gluten-free option, ensure you use corn tortillas.
  • Marinating Time: For the best flavor, allow the steak to marinate as long as possible within the 1 to 24-hour range.

Enjoy your Asian Steak Tacos with Spicy Mushroom Salsa, a fusion dish that’s bursting with flavors and textures, perfect for a unique twist on taco night.
