Soba Noodles With Shiitake Mushrooms And Radish

from FoodRepublic.com

 

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound soba noodles
  •  kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed
  • 1 bunch green onions, white and tender green parts only, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 radishes, grated

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, mirin, Sriracha and 3 tablespoons water and bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the chicken. Simmer gently until the chicken is opaque throughout, about 10 minutes. The liquid will thicken slightly as the chicken cooks, but add a bit more water if it gets dry.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the soba noodles and a pinch of salt, and cook until al dente, about 5 minutes or according to the package directions. Immediately drain in a colander set in the sink, rinse under cold running water, and let drain again thoroughly.
  3. In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil over high heat. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt and cook, stirring often, until tender, 2–3 minutes.
  4. In a bowl, toss the soba noodles with the warm chicken and sauce, warm mushrooms and half of the green onions. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with the remaining green onions, sesame oil and radish. Serve right away.

TIPS & NOTES

  • Cut beets into 1/2- to 1-inch-thick cubes, wedges or slices.
  • To steam on the stovetop: Place in a steamer basket over 1 inch of boiling water in a large pot. Cover and steam over high heat until tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
