Food Porn of The Week: Long life Noodles & Flank Steak

I'd like to call this meal a "happy accident".  I was supposed to make the flank steak along side white rice and black beans, but when I searched my cabinet I realized I forgot to buy the beans.  It was all good because I had all the ingredients necessary to make the Long Life noodles from Katie Lee Joel's cookbook, The Comfort Table.  Long life noodles or longevity noodles are a traditional dish for Chinese New Year or birthdays.  The noodles symbolize living well into old age.  The rule is you are not supposed to break or cut them as it is considered bad luck to do so.  Here is a similar recipe for the noodles and here is the recipe for the flank steak.
