Sesame Beef And Noodles
to Prep & to Cook
Yields 6 (6 servings × 1)
Soba noodles are made with buckwheat, making them dense with vitamins B1 and B2, several minerals, and nearly twice the amount of proteins found in rice.
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 cups sweet peas
1 head broccoli
3 whole carrots
2 stalks bok choy
1 lb soba noodles
2 tbsp rice vinegar
0.25 cup soy sauce
0.25 cup canola oil
2lbs skirt steak or flank steak
Put the steak in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm for slicing.
In a large bowl mix soy sauce, 3 tablespoons oil, and vinegar. Add beef and toss to coat evenly. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, thinly slice the carrots. Cut the broccoli into 1 inch pieces. Remove peas from the shells.
Toast sesame seeds in dry saute pan on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. When brown, immediately remove from pan and set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium heat. Salt the water and add the soba noodles. Cook for 7 minutes. Remove noodles from the pot with a handheld skimmer or strainer. Put in a large bowl and set aside.
Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons oil in large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the beef and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Reserve the marinade. Turn heat to high and add the vegetables. Stir fry 2 to 3 additional minutes, then add the reserved marinade and bring to a boil. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Turn heat to high and add the vegetables. Stir fry 2 to 3 additional minutes, then add the reserved marinade and bring to a boil. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
