Ingredients

  • 12 oz beef marinating flank steak
  • 1 pinch salt

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 6 oz rice stick vermicelli (about 1/8 inch/3 mm wide)

  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped unsalted peanut
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

Method

Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook steak, turning once, until medium-rare, 10 to 12 minutes. Tent with foil; let stand for 10 minutes. Slice across the grain into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices.

Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions. Rinse under cold water until cool; drain.
