Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Marinate steak in soy sauce, chilli and garlic for 20 minutes.

Step 3 Heat a griddle pan or barbecue and cook steak for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove and rest for 5 minutes before slicing finely.
Step 4 Fold sliced beef and vegetables through noodles. Combine olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice and mix through salad.
Step 5 Add herbs just before serving.
