In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce and 1/2 the Sichuan garlic paste. Set aside.


Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Thinly slice the pear. Shred the cos lettuce (see ingredients list).


In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise with the remaining Sichuan garlic paste. Set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Add the beef strips and cook, tossing, until browned, 1-2 minutes. Remove the pan from heat, add the Sichuan-soy marinade and stir through until the beef is coated.

TIP: If your pan is getting crowded, cook in batches for the best results!


Heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, until warmed through.


Bring everything to the table to serve. Spread each tortilla with some Sichuan garlic mayo and top with the cos lettuce, carrot, pear and Sichaun garlic beef strips. Garnish with the crispy shallots.
