Easy to cook Japanese food using supermarket products series. 

Yakisoba, stir-fried noodles, are a simple dish to make at home. We love the Maru-chan @maruchan_inc noodles that are sold in packs of three and include a powdered seasoning sauce. The noodles are delicious on its own, but most of the time we add pork and vegetables. A sprinkle of katsuobushi smoked skipjack tuna (also called bonito) flakes and aonori.

Sauté any vegetables like cabbage, onions, carrots, bean sprouts, mushrooms, and bell peppers and then set aside. Sauté pork and set aside. I set aside on this day as I did a large amount of vegetables. If cooking a small amount of pork and vegetables then leave the cooked items in the pan and add the noodles to this.

Tip: the instructions on the Maruchan package says to microwave the noodles in the plastic packaging in the microwave for 30 seconds. It helps to break up the noodles before sauteeing. Add the noodles to the sauté pan used for pork and vegetables. Add 60 ml of water and break up the noodles while steaming in this water. Add the powdered yakisoba sauce and cook until the noodles are covered. Add the pork and vegetables and mix until combined.

When serving garnish with katsuobushi and aonori. (optional)

While the dish is called yakisoba the noodles are ramen style noodles, not soba. 🙂 Look for yakisoba packages at Japanese or Asian supermarkets.

*I just used a portion of the pork in the photo.
