Simple Sesame Noodles with Steak

For Christmas, I got a Pioneer Woman cookbook, she's one of my favorite bloggers and one of the few Food Network shows I (try to) watch every week. Occasionally I flip through the cookbook to figure out what to make for dinner. We decided on this, which is a alternate recipe to Pioneer Woman's Simple Sesame Noodle recipe, with added marinated steak. It's a very delicious, simple meal to make for dinner or lunch.




Here's the Simple Sesame Noodles with Steak recipe, adapted from Pioneer Woman

Ingredients:
1 Whole Sirloin Steak, 3/4 To 1 Pound
Kosher Salt to taste
3/4 Cups Low-Sodium Soy Sauce (I always use low-sodium soy sauce, because you can always add salt later, but you can't take it out once it's in your food)
3 Tbsp Sesame Oil
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Rice wine vinegar
1 tsp Hot Chili Oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2-3 Green onions, sliced
8 ounces, or about half the package, thin spaghetti

Directions:
1. Season both sides of the sirloin with salt. Grill on an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan until medium rare. Remove from heat and set aside.
2. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, rice wine vinegar, hot chili oil, garlic, ginger, and brown sugar. Mix to combine, then taste and adjust flavors/seasonings to your taste.
3. When steak is cool enough, place in a large plastic storage bag. Add 3 tablespoons of dressing. Seal bag tightly and place in fridge until needed.
4. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and place in a bowl. Pour remaining dressing over the top and toss to combine. Finally, toss in green onions. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours or until cool. You can make the steak and noodles well in advance of when you want to serve.
5. To serve, remove steak from storage bag and slice against the grain into thin strips. Drizzle a little soy sauce over noodles just to give it a little flavor boost, and toss to combine. Serve strips of beef over mound of noodles, or throw it all into a bowl together.
