Whisk up marinade ingredients, add steak and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

For the noodles, bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta to package directions. Drain and cool under cold water; drain again.
 
Whisk up sesame noodle dressing and toss with noodles to coat.

Serve noodles alongside sliced steak topped with sesame seeds, peanuts, chili pepper, cucumber matchsticks and chives.
