Yaki Udon

This is a very quick & easy Japanese fried noodle, it’s highly customizable, you can add whatever you want into this dish, and the thick and smooth noodle is one of the most satisfying things to have on a cold fall night!


You need:

  • 1/2 lb fresh/frozen udon noodles
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1/4 head cabbage
  • 1/4 cup bean sprouts
  • 5 shiitake mushrooms
  • 4 tbsp mirin
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 lb of prawn (or any meat of your choice)

How to make this:

  1. Cut the onion, cabbage and shiitake mushrooms into thick slices, rinse and dry them completely
  2. Measure everything before cooking, if you want to use beef or pork, cut them into slices or strips (this is a stir-fried, so once you start, you can’t stop)
  3. Heat up a wok or a thin bottom on high, pour in the sesame oil, then add in the onion, cabbage, bean sprouts, mushrooms, and prawn, quickly stir fry them for 3 min
  4. Add in the noodle, pour in the mirin, soy sauce, turn the heat down to medium, cover it, and let the noodle cook in the sauce for about 3 min
  5. Add the sugar and Worcestershire sauce and stir the noodle until the sauce covers them evenly
  6. Sprinkle some sesame seed or chopped green onion, sever it with some pickled ginger or seaweed
