Asian Steak and Noodles

I'm not usually crazy for steak, but on this particular night, I decided I was going to cook some anyway. However, not having a grill, I figured it would be much easier to chunk up the steak and cook it in a sort of stir-fry with noodles. I consulted a few stir-fry and hibachi steak recipes for inspiration, and ended up with this recipe. It turned out much more delicious than expected, and we didn't leave any leftovers.

Ingredients (serves two)
8 oz. steak (I used a top sirloin filet)
Marinade (I had leftover red wine/shallot marinade)
1 medium chopped onion
1 thinly sliced zucchini
1 package sliced mushrooms
Asian noodles (I used about 4 oz. wide lo mein noodles)
Soy sauce
Lemon juice

1. Marinate steak. Don't skimp on marination time - I did maybe only 45 minutes, and the slightly dry steak was my only complaint with the finished product (although that may have just been the steak cut).
2. Cook noodles to not quite done and drain.
3. Sauté onion (I used a large non-stick frying pan, although a wok would have been better suited).
4. Add steak, along with some lemon, butter, and soy, and cook until almost done. Don't be afraid to let some marinade dribble into the pan - I think this may be partially responsible for how well mine turned out.
5. Add zucchini and mushrooms, mix with some more lemon/butter/soy, cook.
6. Add noodles and stir so they absorb the tasty juice. Cook to your satisfaction.

Two things at once? Magic!

All done!
