Yakisoba is a stir-fried Japanese noodle dish. Its literal meaning is “fried noodles in sauce” and it is kind of like your typical Chinese chow mein but with different type of noodles.
This recipe I made with fresh tuna and a side of miso soup. That was just an add-on I did but you can eat this noodle dish as is.
- • 1 package of Maruchan’s Fresh Yaki-Soba with seasoning sauce base
- • 1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- • 1/4 lb boneless pork rib, thinly sliced
- • 2 inches carrot, cut into thin rectangles
- • 1 green bell pepper, cored and chopped
- • 1/4 medium onion, thinly sliced
- • 2 green head cabbage leaves, chopped
- • Salt and pepper
- Cook the noodles according to packaged instructions.
- Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan or wok on medium heat.
- Once the oil has been heated, stir-fry the pork until it is nearly cooked.
- Sprinkle some salt and pepper to season the meat.
- Add carrots, onions and bell peppers in the wok and stir-fry for about 2-3 minutes (or until the vegetables are tender but firm).
- Add the chopped cabbage leaves and stir-fry for an additional minute.
- Add the noodles in the skillet.
- And pour ¼ cup of water over the noodles (or more if you have more noodles) and turn down the heat to low.
- Once the noodles have been separated and have a firm consistency, add the seasoning powder that came with the package. If your noodles didn’t come with a seasoning pack, you can add yakisoba sauce or Worcestershire sauce.
- Adjust the amount of sauce/powder to your taste.
- Stir the noodles thoroughly so the powder/sauce is evenly coated.
- Divide into individual plates and enjoy!
