Yakisoba (焼きそば) is a classic Japanese fried noodles.

I kept the recipe very simple using a minimum ingredients. Of course you can use meat (or seafood) and veggies of your choice!!! I hope you get an idea how to make it ?


Difficulty:  Very Easy

Time: 15min

Number of servings: 2


2 packages Yakisoba noodles (steamed Chuka noodles)
100g (3.5oz.) thinly sliced pork rib
200g (7oz.) cabbage
4 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. Tenkasu (crunchy bits of deep fried flour-batter) *if you like
Aonori (green laver)
Beni Shoga (red pickled ginger)


1. Cut pork into bite-size pieces. Thinly cut the cabbage.

2. Put frying pan on medium, place the Yakisoba noodles and cook for 2 minutes. Shake to release the noodles, cook for 3 minutes, remove form the pan and set aside.

3. Cook the pork until done, add cabbage, sprinkle with Tenkasu (if you like), then cover with the noodles and steam for 2 minutes.

4. Mix well and season with Worcestershire sauce.

You can also top with mayonnaise and/or Katsuobushi (bonito flakes) if you like.
