AT A GLANCE
Skip the beef for a light, summery vegetarian option.
|01||Simmer soy sauce, honey, ginger, vinegar and garlic in a small saucepan until a glaze forms (1-2 minutes), then set aside.|
|02||Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add beef and brown on all sides (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat, pat dry with paper towels, brush generously with soy glaze (you won’t use all of it), then place in freezer to chill (8-10 minutes).|
|03||For the soba, cook soba according to packet instructions until al dente, adding peas in the last minute, then rinse under cold running water. Drain well, then combine in a bowl with vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, cucumber and spring onion. Toss to combine, then divide among bowls.|
|04||To serve, thinly slice beef, pile on top of noodles and scatter with spring onion, sesame seeds and any remaining soy glaze to taste.|
