Thai Steak Tacos with Mango & Cucumber Salsa

Lately, I have been planning my meals based on my Door to Door Organics fruits and veggies.  I had a mango and cucumber to use up. I went to my handy dandy Pinterest and searched "Mango Cucumber" and came up with this! 
Ingredients - Sauce (this sauce is very similar to this, and can be substituted)
½ cup sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup fish sauce
2 T Lime juice
Sriracha, to taste
1 1/2 cups water

Ingredients – Tacos
1 1/2 lbs stir fry steak.
1/2 cup sauce 

Ingredients- Salsa
1/4 cup Shallots ,minced
1/2 Cucumber diced
1 Mango diced
1/4 cup Cilantro
dash of salt

Combine 1½ cups water and sugar into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. 
Simmer until reduced by about half, about 15 minutes. 
Stir in garlic, lime, fish sauce, and siracha. 

Combine steak with ½ cup of nuoc nam in  Ziploc bag. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Sear for about 3 to 4 minutes each side. Set aside and let rest for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Toss mango, cucumber, and shallots, and cilantro with ¼ cup of sauce and some salt. Cover and refrigerate.

Heat up tortillas according to package instructions.
Assemble own tacos with steak and cucumber and mango salsa.
