Finely chop the garlic. In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, soy sauce and honey. Add the beef strips, toss to coat and set aside to marinate. TIP: If you have time, let the beef marinate for at least 15 minutes to enhance the flavour and increase tenderness.


While the beef is marinating, thinly slice the red onion (see ingredients). In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, the water and a good pinch of sugar and salt. Scrunch the onion in your hands, then add to the pickling liquid and stir to coat. Set aside until serving. TIP: If you don't like pickled onion, skip this step and cook the onion in step 4 with the beef!


While the onion is pickling, grate the carrot (unpeeled). Thinly slice the long green chilli (if using). In a second medium bowl, combine the carrot, cos lettuce mix and chilli. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the beef strips, in batches, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. TIP: Cooking the meat in batches over a high heat keeps it tender. TIP: You can cook the onion with the beef if you prefer.


While the beef is cooking, heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, until warmed through.


Drain the pickled onion. Bring everything to the table to serve. Top the tortillas with the salad, honey-soy beef and quick-pickled onion. Spoon over the garlic aioli and garnish with the crispy shallots.
