Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, grated ginger, red pepper, 3 tablespoons each of the vinegar and brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Pour two-thirds of the dressing into a shallow baking dish, add the steak, and refrigerate, turning once, for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours. Set aside the remaining dressing.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring to a boil ½ cup water, the remaining ½ cup of vinegar, the remaining tablespoon of brown sugar, the sliced ginger, and ½ teaspoon salt. Add the carrots and jalapeño and simmer until the carrots are crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and refrigerate until cool, at least 1 hour.
  3. Fifteen minutes before serving, cook the noodles according to the package directions; rinse.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the steak to the desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 5 minutes. Slice and serve on the noodles with the pickled vegetables, cilantro, and reserved dressing.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
