My “sunset” yakisoba, or in this case, yakiudon, is named for it’s bright colors. It’s fast, easy to make, and only requires chopping and stirring!
– 4 packets of udon or yakisoba noodles (not dry)
– 1 bottle of Otafuku Yakisoba sauce (Available at Don Quijote)
– 1 yellow bell pepper
– 1 orange bell pepper
– Beef, however much you want.
– kamaboko (pink and white fish cake)
– sesame oil
Step 1: Chop up the beef into small pieces. When I make my yakisoba, I think of beef as a garnish, rather than a main part, so I use only a small amount.
Step 2: Chop up the bell peppers and mix up the colors! So pretty!
Step 3: Chop up the kamaboko!
Step 4: Grease the frying pan with sesame oil, and cook the beef thoroughly.
Step 5: Add in the bell peppers and kamaboko. Stir around for a bit to get the bell peppers slightly cooked.
Step 6: Add in the noodles! Make sure to gently break apart the clumps.
Step 7: Add in the sauce. Use as much sauce as it takes to coat the ingredients, but you can add extra if you like your yakisoba extra flavorful.
Step 8: Stir stir stir! Stir until the sauce has coated all the ingredients.
And that’s it! It’s a great meal for college students, as the ingredients (except the sauce, I admit…) are fairly cheap, and if you’re cooking for yourself, you should have leftovers for lunch the next day. I also experiment with ingredients, sometimes adding tofu, mushrooms, and other things to the stir-fry. Hope you all enjoy it!
