2 beef Strip Filets, cut 1-3/4 to 2 inches thick (about 1 pound)
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger, divided
2 teaspoons minced garlic
6 ounces uncooked soba noodles
8 ounces sugar snap peas, cut diagonally in half
1-1/2 cups thinly sliced red bell pepper
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh mint
2 tablespoons diagonally sliced green onion
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Reduced-sodium soy sauce (optional)
Toasted sesame seeds (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush beef Filets with 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Combine 2 teaspoons ginger and garlic; press evenly onto Filets. Heat heavy, ovenproof, nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place Filets in skillet and brown 2 minutes; turn Filets over and place skillet into preheated oven.
Cook in 350°F oven 19 to 23 minutes for medium rare; 24 to 28 minutes for medium doneness.
Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Combine noodles, peas, bell pepper, basil, mint, green onion and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds in large bowl. Whisk remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, oil, lime juice and remaining 1 teaspoon ginger in small bowl until blended. Pour over noodle mixture; toss to combine. Season with additional soy sauce to taste, if desired. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
Remove Filets from oven when internal temperature reaches 135°F for medium rare; 150°F for medium. Transfer Filets to carving board; tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 10°F to reach 145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium.)
Carve Filets into slices; serve with noodle salad. Garnish with additional sesame seeds, if desired.
