Updated: Jul 25, 2021


Yakisoba sauce

3 tbsp wocestershire sauce

2 tsp light soy

3 tsp oyster sauce

2 tsp ketchup

1 tsp honey

1 tsp mirin

1 tsp sugar

Pork belly/chicken thigh/prawns you can use either

1 large carrot

1 white onion

1/2 white cabbage

spring onion

2 garlic cloves

10g ginger

1 egg

ramen or udon noodles

black sesame seeds (optional)

shichimi pepper (optional)


1. For this quick and easy recipe start by preparing the sauce, add Worcestershire sauce, soy, oyster sauce, ketchup, honey, mirin and sugar to a small bowl and whisk together until smooth.

2. In a frying pan add either belly pork prawns or chicken thighs until nicely golden brown, season with a little salt and pepper and set aside for now. If you use belly pork I recommend that you cut into thin cubes, and if you choose to use chicken thighs take off the bone and slice into thin strips. For prawns remove the shell, remove the tract and fry for around 1 min setting aside to ensure that they do not over cook.

3. Next step the veggies wash and peel the carrots then finely chop, peel and chop the onion in half then slice. Wash and cut the cabbage into pieces and for the spring onions slice into batons as for the ginger and garlic grate and place to one side for now. You can cut the veg however you like, use the picture for a reference if you prefer. Now all the veg is prepared in a large hot pan firstly add oil then the carrots onion and cabbage and stir fry for around 3-4 mins until the vegetables become soft. Then we can add the spring onions, garlic and ginger and cook for a further minute, after remove from the heat and set to a side.

4. Depending on what noodle you use it may vary on how to cook them, for this I used instant udon noodles so I added them into a bowl and covered in boiling water for around 2 minutes until the noodles became soft. Now everything is ready to go put the pan of cooked vegetables back onto a high heat and add the cooked meat from earlier, add the noodles and fry so that the noodles can take on all the flavour from the vegetables and meat. In the same pan add all of the sauce and turn down to a low heat mixing making sure all the sauce coats the noodles. Check the seasoning and add to a serving bowl, if you like you could fry an egg to go on top then add black sesame seeds or shichimi pepper.

Enjoy this super quick and easy recipe!

Additional notes:

Yakisoba is quick and simple this recipe this recipe is just a guide of what vegetables and meat you could use. The sauce is really the key here so as long your adding that and either ramen or udon you should be fine.
