Most Chinese markets and take-out restaurants sell some form of cooked Peking or barbecued duck. It's easy to call ahead and pick it up on the way home. Then just serve it with a flavorful homemade broth and fresh noodles.
This dish requires some multitasking, but the benefits of creating something this delicious in only 30 minutes are well worth the hustle.
If you're entertaining friends, take a more leisurely approach and make the dressing, cook the noodles, and clean the herbs ahead; then at serving time, just cook the steak and combine the ingredients.
