Soy Steak Noodle Bowl

November 18

This Soy Steak Dish is a wonderfully versatile noodle bowl concept that can be adapted with so many different variants. Take the dressing in a Thai direction by whisking together fish sauce, lime juice, sugar and chilli or try inspiration from South Korea with a spicy gojujang dressing by adding a dollop of the spice paste into the dressing here.

  • time 15 mins
  • serves Serves 2
  1. Heat a griddle pan over a medium high heat. Rub the steak with sesame oil and season generously with pepper and fry 3-4 minutes on either side until medium rare. Remove from the pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Mix together the ingredients for the dressing in a jar, shake to combine. Toss together the chinese cabbage, carrots, spring onions and radishes in a large bowl along with two thirds of the dressing. Toss the noodles with the remaining dressing and any juices from the rested steak.
  3. Arrange the noodles in a bowl followed by the veg.
  4. Slice the steak thinly and arrange on top of the noodles along with the herbs and
    crushed peanuts.
