    1. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Season steak with salt and pepper on both sides. Lay steak in hot skillet and sear on each side for 3-4 minutes (for medium-rare). Remove steak from heat. Generously brush top of steak with jam and let rest.

    3. Whisk together dressing ingredients and set aside. Mix slaw ingredients together and toss with dressing.

    4. Thinly slice steak against the grain. Divide slaw evenly among tortillas, top with sliced steak and sprinkle a bit of sea salt directly on meat. Add blue cheese crumbles, garnish with chives and drizzle with remaining jam.
