Thinly slice the cucumber into batons. In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar and salt. Stir to dissolve and add the cucumber. Toss to coat, then set aside, tossing every few minutes to coat in the pickling liquid.
TIP: Slicing the cucumber very thinly helps it pickle faster!
Finely grate the ginger and garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium bowl, combine the ginger, garlic, soy sauce and honey. Add the beef strips and toss to coat.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the mixed sesame seeds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.
Return the pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add 1/2 the beef strips, shaking off any excess marinade, and cook, tossing, until browned, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining beef strips.
TIP: Cooking the beef without any excess marinade helps keep it tender without stewing the meat.
Heat the mini flour tortillas in a sandwich press, or on a plate in the microwave for 10 second bursts, until warm. In a medium bowl, combine the Japanese dressing with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the slaw mix and the toasted sesame seeds and toss to coat.
Bring everything to the table to serve. Spread the tortillas with the garlic aioli and fill with the Japanese slaw, beef strips and pickled cucumber.
