Vietnamese-Style Steak with Noodles

Recipe from: Karl E. Moser

2 1 inch thick chuck steaks, about 1 pound
6 ounces capellini, or other thin spaghetti
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 ½ tablespoons lite soy sauce
5 garlic cloves, minced
4 teaspoons raw sugar
¼ teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes or cayenne
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon anchovy paste
¼ cup fresh mint leaves, shredded, or 1 teaspoon dried, crumbled
¾ cup fresh bean sprouts, washed
½ red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
½ green bell pepper cut into thin strips

In a kettle of boiling salted water boil the capellini until it is just tender and drain it in a colander. Rinse the capellini under cold water and drain. While the noodles are boiling, in a blender blend the vinegar, 1 tablespoon water, soy sauce, garlic, sugar, red pepper flakes or cayenne, salt, and anchovy paste until the sauce is smooth. In a bowl toss the noodles with the sauce and the shredded mint. Grill steaks on an oiled grate until medium rare. Remove from grill and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut the steaks into thin slices. Divide the noodles between 2 plates, mounding them, arrange the slices of steak on them, and surround the noodles with the bean sprouts and the bell pepper.
