Steak & Shiitake Mushroom Soba Noodles with Ginger Lime Dressing 

Makes 4 servings 

Ginger Lime Dressing

¼ cup soy sauce 

¼ cup lime juice 

1 tablespoon honey 

2 garlic cloves 

2 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger 

1 teaspoon sesame oil 

Steak & Mushroom Noodles

2 tablespoons grapeseed (or canola) oil, divided 

6 ounces shiitake mushrooms, large stems removed

8 ounces soba noodles 

1 pound thick-cut sirloin steak, at room temperature 

8 ounces baby bok choy, halved 

1 cup julienned carrots 

3 spring onions, thinly sliced 

Small bunch cilantro 

Sea salt and cracked black pepper 

1. Cook the soba noodles according to package instructions, then immediately run them under cold running water. Drain well and set aside. Meanwhile, grab a large bowl and combine all of the ginger lime dressing ingredients. Whisk well then set aside. 

2. Heat a large skillet (cast-iron if you have one) over medium-heat and pour in 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil. When the oil shimmers, add the mushrooms and season with sea salt. Cook until golden brown and starting to crisp, 8 – 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. 

3. Meanwhile, season the steak on all sides with sea salt and cracked black pepper. Increase the heat to medium-high heat and get the cast-iron rocking hot (open a window & turn on the oven hood – you want your pan as hot as the sun). Add the steak and cook for 3 – 4 minutes per side for a medium-rare cooked steak (cook longer if you prefer your steak more well done). Remove and set aside to rest at least 5 minutes before slicing into thin strips. 

4. Turn the heat down to medium, then add the bok choy. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until the bok choy begins to brown and char, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. 

5. Combine the ginger lime dressing, noodles, carrots, green onions, mushrooms, and bok choy together and mix well. Divide onto plates, then top with sliced steak and cilantro leaves. Delicious!
