A small amount of pepper flakes is needed to balance the sweetness of the hoisin and the ginger.

Ingredients

low sodium soy sauce

2½ Tbsp

sherry (dry or sweet)

1 Tbsp

ginger root

½ tsp, grated, peeled, fresh ginger

garlic clove(s)

1 medium clove(s), minced

uncooked lean flank steak

1 pound(s), trimmed of all visible fat

uncooked soba noodles

8 oz, or lo mein

hoisin sauce

2 Tbsp

dark sesame oil

1 tsp

crushed red pepper flakes

tsp

uncooked bell pepper(s)

1 item(s), medium, red, seeded and thinly sliced

uncooked bell pepper(s)

1 item(s), medium, green, seeded and thinly sliced

uncooked scallion(s)

2 medium, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. In a shallow baking dish, mix 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce, the sherry, ginger, and garlic. Add the steak, turning to coat. Let stand 20 minutes to marinate.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to package directions; drain and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce, the hoisin sauce, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper. Then add the bell peppers and scallions; toss to combine.
  3. Spray a broiler rack with nonstick spray; preheat the broiler. Broil the steak 5 inches from the heat until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the steak registers 160°F for medium, 145°F for medium-rare, about 4 minutes on each side for medium. Thinly slice the steak on the diagonal across the grain into about 24 slices. Divide the noodles and vegetables among 6 plates; top with the steak slices.

Notes

Look for lo mein noodles in your supermarket’s Asian-food section; if you can’t find them, use soba noodles or fettuccine.
