So delicious! I marinated my steak for two days and it came out so flavorful. I accidentally made the steak "tough" because I spaced out and cut the steak with the grain instead of against. Oops. So follow their warning for tender steak bits. The kimichi is a must if you want that great spicy tang in the slaw. However, I personally think the sour cream and gochujang sauce isn't necessary to the dish. 5/5 will make again!

Getting the cucumbers and steak marinating a day in advance meant that this meal came together relatively quickly. Plus it was yummy - although there was no way all the filling was going to fit in a single tortilla.

Made onto burrito bowls, added snap peas because I had them and needed to use them up. Easy and tasty
