Teriyaki Steak and Soba Noodles
Anyone who has been with me to Wagamama knows I only ever order one thing - the teriyaki steak and noodles. I just love it. Now, I wouldn't say this dish tastes completely like it but they're similar enough. It'll satisfy the craving and, as a bonus, it's a rather healthy dish! You can pile on the greens if you want.
I don't know what else to say about this dish. It's pretty much what it says on the tin. No faff. No fancy methods. Just easy and quick cooking.
You could easily sub in chicken for the steak if you don't eat it or prefer some PROtein.
Add some beansprouts at the end or some broccoli to really pad this dish out.
Make sure you don't overcook your noodles, they can get stodgy quickly. Nobody likes stodgy.
Vegans/Vegetarians: Grill some tofu or seitan in teriyaki sauce!
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 teaspoons of sesame oil
2 sirloin or tenderloin steaks
1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce
1 red onion, thinly sliced
3 green chillies, deseeded and thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, sliced
150 grams of sugar snap peas
1 tablespoon of fish sauce
400 grams of buckwheat noodles
Large pinch of salt and pepper
1 tablespoon of mixed, toasted, sesame seeds, for serving
1 cup of coriander leaves, roughly chopped, for serving
Pat your steak dry. Season your steak with salt and pepper.
Put a frying pan on a high heat with the oil in it. Once the oil is glistening add your steak and sear on both sides for 3 minutes. Remove steak from the pan and let it rest for 5 minutes. Slice the steak once rested and dip in your teriyaki sauce.
Lower the heat and put your onions in the pan alongside your sesame oil. Sauté for 5-8 minutes until soft. Add in your chillies and garlic and sauté for a further 3 minutes.
Whilst your cooking your vegetables, place your noodles in a pot of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes then drain the noodles.
To your frying pan add in your snap peas, noodles, fish sauce, and half your teriyaki sauce. Toss for 2 minutes and then serve in a bowl with your steak, sesame seeds, coriander, and the rest of the sauce.
Dig in! Enjoy!
