Our combination of tender beef, peanuts, crisp veggies, and soba noodles is so much better than takeout.

Ingredients

Directions

  • In a pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles until al dente. Drain; set aside.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Season steak with salt and pepper. Cook (in batches if necessary), turning once, until medium-rare, 2 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer steak to a cutting board, and loosely tent with aluminum foil (reserve skillet with juices).

  • Add snow peas to skillet, and toss with juices. Cook on medium-high heat, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add noodles, soy sauce, and 2 tablespoons water; cook until warmed through, about 20 seconds. Transfer to serving bowls. Slice steak; place on top of noodles, and add any accumulated juices. Scatter with peanuts, and serve.

Cook's Notes

For maximum tenderness, avoid cooking steak beyond medium-rare. Find soba noodles in the Asian-foods aisle.

Variations

You can add 1 tablespoon white miso; 2 scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish; 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, for garnish.

Following the recipe exactly as published will turn out a bland and very boring dish. Meat definitely needs to be marinated or spiced. Would have added ginger, red pepper or other asian spices to make it enjoyable. Won't make again.

Easy and yummy with modifications. I seasoned the meat with powdered ginger and added more soy sauce and water to the noodles, in addition to crushed red pepper flakes. Yum. And we dipped the beef in sriracha. Didn't miss take out!

Cindyrella47: I bought white miso (it comes in a paste) at a whole foods/natural foods store in my area. It's a little expensive, but since it's already fermented it lasts virtually forever in your fridge.

love the receipe but can't find where to buy Miso? Tried 5 stores in my area to no avail! I know it is a highly flavored fermented bean curd and would like to make the receipe again using the Miso. My family and I loved it. This makes enough for at least 6 people! Our family of 4 adults is having it again tonight for leftovers are plentiful! Love it without the Miso want to try with Miso!

I've tried making Soba noodles in the past and they fell apart. Is there a secret to handling them?
