  • To make kimchi, wash the cabbage then toss with salt in a colander. Place colander over a bowl; stand for 30 mins. Rinse the cabbage well to remove the salt. Pat dry with paper towel. Combine rice vinegar, paste, syrup and oil in a large bowl. Add cabbage, toss well to coat. Set aside.

    Meanwhile, combine onion, garlic, soy sauce, extra syrup and extra oil in a medium bowl; season.

    Add steak; mix well to coat. Cover; refrigerate for 1 hour. Cook corn on an oiled grill plate (or grill or barbecue) over high heat for 10 mins, turning occasionally, or until lightly charred. Remove from heat. When cool enough to handle, cut kernels from cobs.

    Drain steak; discard marinade. Cook steak on an oiled grill plate (or grill or barbecue) over medium-high heat for 3 mins each side for medium rare or until cooked to your liking. Remove from heat; rest, covered, for 5 mins. Slice thinly.

    Divide spicy kimchi, corn, avocado and steak among tortillas; top with micro herbs.
