Japanese Wasabi Steak and Noodles

Tonights meal has a Japanese theme, consisting of a large Sirloin steak and a pack of Udon noodles. Considering it only took 20min from preparation to plate I am pleased with the results. It is the first time I have used wasabi and it is literally a more fiery, intense relative to horseradish sauce. Tahini is an ingredient I first used last year and have used it frequently. My only criticism, and something I will add the next time I make this dish, is that it needed a side salad of maybe raw carrot or mooli to freshen the palate to give a balance to the 2 sticky dishes.

1 large sirloin steak
1 tbsp Tahini
1 tbsp Water
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
juice of 1/2 lime
pack of Udon noodles
2 tsp Wasabi paste
3 tsp Lemon juice
2 tsp Vegetable oil
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
3 tbsp Mayonnaise
Black pepper and Salt

1. Season steak and drizzle with small amount of olive oil. Warm frying pan on oven.
2. Prepare the sauce for the steak by adding the water to the tahini and stir until smooth. Combine the soy sauce and lime juice until smooth. Put aside.
3. Place steak in pan and cook to personal preference. Turn every minute or so.
2. Prepare noodles according to packet instructions.
3. Prepare the sauce for the noodles by mixing together the wasabi paste, lemon juice, vegetable oil, cayenne pepper and mayonnaise. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir sauce into cooked noodles.
4. Allow cooked steak to rest for a couple of minutes; slice and serve onto plates. Drizzle with the tahini sauce. Add the prepared noodles.
