- Divide slaw and beef evenly among lettuce leaves. Drizzle with any remaining sauce. Top with pistachios, if desired.
Test Kitchen Tips: Ras el hanout is a spice mix from North Africa, although generally associated with Morocco. The name is Arabic for "head of the shop" (similarly to the English expression "top-shelf") and implies a mixture of the best spices the seller has to offer. It can be found online and in specialty and ethnic grocery shops.
