Beef Kabobs and NoodlesSissy Biggers

Servings: 4

For dressing, in a small saucepan combine the sake, 2 tablespoons of the hoisin sauce, the soy sauce, sugar, ginger, and ground red pepper. Bring to boiling; remove from heat. Cool slightly.

Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 1-inch cubes. Place meat in a plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Add 2 tablespoons of the dressing and the remaining hoisin sauce; seal bag. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to 3 hours, turning bag occasionally. If using bamboo skewers, soak 4 skewers in warm water for 20 minutes; drain. Drain meat, discarding marinade. Thread meat onto 10- to 12-inch long bamboo or metal skewers.

For a charcoal grill, grill kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 14 minutes or until meat is slightly pink in center, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place kabobs on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.)

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook soba noodles in boiling water about 6 minutes or until tender but still firm, adding pea pods and carrot the last 2 minutes of cooking; drain. Return mixture to hot pan. Add remaining dressing and sesame oil; toss gently to coat.

Transfer soba mixture to a small serving platter. Place kabobs on noodle mixture. Sprinkle with onions and sesame seed.
