Step  3 Add the cooked pasta, cabbage and cucumber to the bowl and toss to coat in the dressing. Set aside. Step  4 For the steaks: Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Season the steaks on both sides with the salt and pepper. Add 2 steaks to the hot skillet and place another heavy skillet or a dutch oven on top; cook about 30 seconds. Step  5 Remove the top skillet and continue to cook the steaks until browned and crusty, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the steaks, then weigh them down again. Cook for another 30 seconds, then remove the weight and cook until browned, about 2 minutes for medium to medium-rare. Step  6 Transfer the steaks to a cutting board and let rest. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 2 steaks. Slice the steaks. Serve with the sesame noodles and sprinkle with the scallions.
