Beef and Spinach Noodles with Wild Sesame Seed

Now that it’s starting to warm up, I’ve been wandering around in the garage.   Oh happy days, I found a box with Japanese cooking supplies!   One of the things in the box was roasted wild sesame seed.   The seeds are round, dark brown and remind me a little of coriander seeds, but smaller.  When added to food, I think they have more of a pronounced crunch than regular toasted/roasted sesame seed.

I found this steak at the local Leader Price.   This store has good prices for staples. Although I usually don’t buy meat here, the discount was irresistible.

Baby spinach in the bag.   M. Parret would be shocked!
