Ingredients

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped 
  • 1 teaspoon salt plus a pinch 
  • 3.5 ounces vegetable oil 
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise 
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha 
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce 
  • Pinch of sugar 
  • 6 ounces wagyu beef or well-marbled prime rib-eye 
  • 4 crispy taco shells 
  • 10 radish slices 
  • 3 to 4 lime wedges 

Directions

Add the jalapeno and cilantro to a food processor and pulse the ingredients together, scraping down the sides as needed. Once the cilantro is close to a puree, add the teaspoon of salt and slowly drizzle in the vegetable oil to emulsify.

Next mix the mayonnaise with the Sriracha, soy sauce, and pinch of salt and sugar until mixed well.

Grill the beef until medium and slice as thin as possible. Place the meat in the taco shell and top with the spicy cilantro sauce and the chili mayo. Top them with the radish slices and serve with the lime wedges.
