Yakisoba

The care package from Japan also had some really good noodles in it, so for tea we had yakisoba (fried noodles).  Essentially it’s stir fried noodles with bite sized pieces of pork, vegetables, sometimes seafood, and then flavoured with yakisoba sauce and a bit of seasoning.

This is such an easy dish to prepare, just get yourself some good noodles (the better the noodles, the better the dish) and everything else is the type of stuff you probably always have around the house.  The one thing you might not have is yakisoba sauce, although lots of asian supermarkets stock it nowadays.  The other option is to make your own – try blending some oyster sauce, soy sauce, mirin, honey and a bit of sugar…
