Flat Iron Steak
- In a mixing bowl, combine the miso, rub, soy sauce, mirin, oils, and honey.
- Place the steak in a baking dish and rub with the marinade. Place in the fridge for 1 hour.
- Setup and preheat your grill with a hot zone and a cool zone.
- Remove the steak from the baking dish and brush aside any excess marinade.
- Place the steak in the hot zone on your grill. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare, about 130 degrees F (55 degrees C). If the steak flares up, move it to the cool zone until the flare-up subsides, then return it to the hot zone.
- Remove the steaks from the grill and transfer them to a cutting board. Cover loosely with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
- Mix the soba noodle dressing by combining the mayonnaise, miso, rub, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, and hot sauce.
- Toss the cooked soba noodles with the miso-mayonnaise dressing. Mound into a nice serving bowl.
- Cut the steak against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place on top of the noodles.
- Drizzle with extra dressing and garnish with chopped green onions and white sesame seeds.
