Recipe by Mike Pellerin
Found this recipe when I was searching for recipes from the two Andy Warhol cookbooks published years ago. This wasn't one of those, but sounded kinda fun. At first I didn't get the refference, but after picturing the end result, yeah, I got it! This one is from a 1995 Miami Herald article.

- 4 tablespoons vietnamese soy sauce

- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

- While the filet is cooking, prepare onions and mushrooms.
- Heat butter in a skillet, add the sausage and saute for 2 minutes.

- Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the sesame oil and bring to a simmer. Add noodles and turn off heat. Let soak for 2 minutes then drain. Keep warm.
