Grilled steak. Soba noodles. The richest coconut peanut butter sauce ever. Your face.
This is some serious luxurious eating. Luxurious, but completely attainable. AND quick. And luxurious. And easy! And, like totally luxurious.
Thing is, it's all in the sauce. It's the silkiest blend of coconut milk, smooth peanut butter, a little heat, some salty tones and sweet, sweet brown sugar. And then you add some fresh veggies, some seasoned grilled steak, fresh cilantro and scallions and good heavens, Lawdy Lou.
I basically just told you the recipe, but let's get gritty!
Start by marinating your steak. I threw in a little soy sauce, olive oil, salt and pepper, and then I let that mess sit overnight. Boomidy.
Get some snow peas and a red bell pepper all nice and sliced.
Then you'll get that glorious sauce going. To a pan add some coconut milk, peanut butter, sambal oelek, brown sugar, lime juice, soy sauce and fish sauce. Don't be scared of the fish sauce! It TRANSFORMS the sauce. Fo' serious.
Once it's all lightly boiling, add the soba noodles, snow peas and pepper slices. Let it simmer and soak for just a few minutes and theeeen….
Ugh. It's just so, so good.
In the meantime, grill your steak! I think I overcooked mine juuuust a tad, but you may like it closer to medium. Whatever you dig, do that. Then give her a nice pretty slice.
Uh, yeah. Noodles and veggies on the bottom, steak on the top, garnished with cilantro and scallions.
Total autumn eating, yo.
