Sriracha Beef with Sautéed Cabbage

Sometimes dinner is not as glamorous as it is other nights and you gotta creatively use your leftovers to make a tasty dinner.  We had a week of “on the go nights”, and I was not interested in running to the grocery store.  I had no recipe in mind but the ingredients we had on hand were: beef (skirt steak), a head of cabbage, onion, garlic, and potatoes.  Cooked cabbage is on my list of “comfort foods” so here’s what came up out of those ingredients.  p.s. – turns out this dish is fantastic!

  • Method: Stovetop
  • Cuisine: International


  • 2 1/2 lb skirt steak, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup onions, diced
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Ingredients Cabbage:

  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 1 head cabbage, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground oregano


  • For Beef: Mix all beef ingredients in a bowl and marinate for 30 minutes.  Bring a large pan to medium-high heat and coat the bottom with a thin layer of vegetable oil.  Add the beef and fry for ~ 2-3 minutes.  Cook in two separate batches if you have a small pan as you want to sear the beef and not steam it.  If you cut the beef thin enough, this will be plenty of time to be cooked through.
  • For Cabbage:  Bring a pot to medium high heat and add enough vegetable oil or  butter to coat the bottom and throw in diced onions.  Saute ~ 3-4 minutes or until translucent and add remaining cabbage ingredients and stir.  Reduce heat to low/medium, cover, cook for ~ 20 minutes or until cabbage is wilted and soft.  Add a little more oil or water if needed.  Stir occasionally.
  • Serve beef over cabbage.  Add sea salt to taste.  Happy Eating!  Beckie
