asian noodles with steak and snow peas... 25 minutes

the goods:

1 package (8.8 ounces) soba (Japanese buckwheat noodles)
1 pound skirt steak, cut in half to fit in skillet
1 pound snow peas, stems trimmed
2 tablespoons soy sauce

In a pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles. Drain; set aside.

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high. Season steak with salt and pepper. Cook, turning once, until medium-rare, 5 to 7 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Transfer steak to a cutting board and tent with aluminum foil.

Add snow peas to skillet, and toss with juices. Cook on medium-high, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add noodles, soy sauce, and 2 tablespoons water; cook until warmed through, about 20 seconds. Transfer to serving dishes. Slice steak ; place on top of noodles and serve with additional soy sauce.
