Grilled Skirt Steak with Homemade Asian Barbeque Marinade
I prepared this recipe as written, fish sauce and all. I found it to be easy and delicious and will definitely be adding this to the list of keepers. As with most other Chef John recipes, there is not only a lot of flavor here, but it is also well-balanced. I also tried this marinade on pork tenderloin and flank steak and both were fantastic. I allowed those to marinate for 8-10 hours, though, because they were not as thin as skirt steak and I was looking for a serious hit of flavor.

Sesame Noodles
I prepared this recipe as written. I found it to be the perfect balance between sweet and spicy. I prefer to let the al dente noodles soak up the sauce for a few hours at room temperature before serving. This yields flavorful noodles as opposed to noodles with a flavorful sauce. It also eliminates the temptation to thicken the sauce thus turning this dish into something other than sesame noodles. I do think the safflower oil could be reduced to 2-3 T. Each time I've made this there was quite a bit of oil left at the bottom of the bowl. I also like to gently simmer the sauce long enough to tame the garlic a little being very careful not to brown it. A couple of tasty substitutions: rice noodles in place of linguine and brown sugar in place of white. This one's a keeper.

Perfection as is. Could be called Yia Yia's Birth Control because it's better than sex!
