Crunchy Noodle Salad with Grilled Asian Flank Steak

I love Ina Garten on Barefoot Contessa. She is so at ease when she cooks and I want to try all of her recipes when I’m done watching her show, plus she seems to have the best marriage/life ever doesn’t she? Anyhoodles, on one episode she made this delicious looking Crunchy Noodle Salad chock-full of red bell pepper, snap peas and spaghetti with a smooth peanut butter, ginger, honey, soy sauce and sesame oil dressing. She also served the salad with an Asian-inspired Grilled Salmon but I thought to combine it with another favorite recipe of mine from Bon Appétit, Grilled Asian Flank Steak.

The Crunchy Asian Noodle Salad recipe I followed exactly except at the end added some hot red pepper flakes to give it some heat (I can’t help myself) and the Grilled Asian Flank Steak I marinated as instructed but instead of grilling I sautéed in a wok with a some freshly chopped broccoli to add even more veggie goodness to it. I also have tried the sweet slaw that accompanies the Asian flank steak recipe and it is quite delicious as well.I topped-off the meal with some fresh pineapple with toasted coconut and voila a delicious and quickly prepared meal with some serious Asian flavors.

On a scale of 1 – 10, I say 7!
