This recipe is delicious but a tad bit expensive to make because it calls for flank steak. So … although I really enjoyed it, I probably won’t have it on a regular basis unless I can find flank steak on sale.
I started with the marinade which was pretty simple to make — just tossing a few ingredients together and whisking them.
Next I combined the cabbage, carrots, mint, cilantro and basil together in a bowl.
Then it was just a matter of tossing it all together.
Truly delicious and great as leftovers also!
I did “paleo-ize” (adapt) this recipe as it had ingredients we don’t normally use in our paleo diet. Ready to try it?

- Sprinkle the steak with pepper and salt.
- Grill the flank steak until it’s cooked to your level of doneness.
- Remove steak from the grill and let it sit for approximately 5 minutes.
- Cut the steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
- Combine the lime juice and the next 5 ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk to make the marinade.
- Combine the cabbage and the remaining ingredients in a separate medium bowl.
- Add 6 tablespoons of the marinade to the cabbage mixture and toss it well.
- Add the steak to the cabbage bowl along with 2 tablespoons of the marinade and stir to combine this well.
