For Flank Steak Marinade:

1 flank steak
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tablespoon peeled, minced fresh ginger
3 scallions, white parts only, sliced
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
3 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons dark sesame oil

For Dressing: (to be mixed with remaining 1/2 of marinade)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey

For Salad:

1 oz Asian rice noodles, or other Asian noodles
1 head of leaf lettuce - Boston, red or green leaf
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
1/2 cup small sweet onion, chopped or sliced into thin rings (optional)
1 pint cherry tomatoes, or two medium sized tomatoes, sliced
1/3 cup fresh mint leaves
1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup dry or honey roasted peanuts, chopped

1. Score the flank steak on both sides, across the grain. This helps the meat to absorb the marinade. Place the steak into a 9 x 9 or 9 x 13 glass dish.

2. Place all of the marinade ingredients into a bowl and mix together well. Make sure the sugar is dissolved. Pour about half o the marinade over the steak in the glass pan. Let marinate int he refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours. Save the other half of the marinade for the dressing.

3. Add to the remaining (for dressing) marinade the 2 tablespoons vegetable oin and 2 tablespoons honey. Wisk and set aside.

4. Bring about 2 - 3 quarts of water to a boil and cook the Japanese noodles, according to package directions. You may use soba noodles or rice noodles. Rice noodles only need to be soaked in cold water, then drained after about 1 hour. If the rice noodles are not tender after an hour, you may need to boil in water 1 - 3 minutes. Drain noodles in colander, rinse with cold water, toss with a little oil. Set aside.

5. Pre-heat barbeque.

6. Place all of the salad ingredients in a large bowl, except peanuts. Toss together.

7. Brush oil or lightly spray PAM on heated grill. Place the flank steak on the hot grate and grill until cooked to taste 4 - 6 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer to cutting board and let rest for at least 3 minutes. Cut the steak into paper thin sli ces across the grain by holding the knife blade at a 45 degree angle tot he top of the meat.

8. If serving in a large bowl to a crowd, toss the salad ingredients and mound the noodles in the center of the salad, drizzle dressing over all of the greens and noodles. Top with sliced steak, and garnish with chopped peanuts and mint. Toss all together just before serving. If serving on individual plates, lay salad ingredients on plates, top with small amount of noodles and few slices of steak. Drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with peanuts. Serve immeidately.
