2.Add sesame oil and remaining grapeseed oil to pan, add mushrooms, ginger, garlic and white parts of spring onion and sauté until tender (2-3 minutes), then transfer to a plate.
3.Cook noodles according to packet instructions until al dente, drain and divide among warm bowls and top with mushrooms and steak. Meanwhile, stir remaining miso, soy sauce and 500ml water in frying pan to combine, bring to a simmer, then pour onto noodles and serve scattered with spring onion greens and sesame seeds.

Shiro (white) miso paste is available from Japanese and Asian grocers.
