From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 25 minutes.
Place the steak and soy sauce in a large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours.
Heat grill to medium or place a grill pan over medium heat. Cook the steak to the desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.
Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the noodles according to the package directions. Rinse the noodles under cold water and drain. In a small bowl, whisk together the ginger (if using), lime juice, brown sugar, salt, and sesame and peanut oils. Thinly slice the steak across the grain. Divide the steak and noodles among individual plates. Top with the radishes and papaya, drizzle with the dressing, and sprinkle with the cilantro (if using).Tip: Look for a papaya that has a smooth, dark green skin with a touch of yellow. It should give slightly when squeezed. If you can find only firm papaya, place the fruit in a paper bag and leave it on a counter for a couple of days.
Recommended wine: Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Riesling
Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling are great choices for Asian. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. You could try Raats Original Chenin Blanc. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 14 dollars per bottle.
Raats Original Chenin BlancOriginal Chenin is crafted without the use of any oak in order to preserve the wine's "original", vibrant fesh fruit character. It's packed with succulent flavours of pineapple, golden delicious apple and citrus, with hints of ginger, honeysuckle and orange blossom and a lovely minerality. This bright, tasty offering from Chenin master Bruwer Raats rivals the finest Loire Valley Chenin."Really clean-cut, with white peach, honeysuckle and mineral notes that drive through the lengthy, well-defined finish. There's also great crunchy acidity buried here."Wine Spectator89 Points
