Yakisoba is a fried noodle dish that originated in China and is similar to Chow Mein. Even though soba is part of the word yakisoba, it is not made using soba (buckwheat) noodles, but instead made with wheat or egg noodles. It is a popular dish at Japanese festivals and events, but can also be one of the easiest ways to enjoy Japanese food at home.


1 portion yakisoba noodles
2 tbsp yakisoba sauce
1 tbsp mayonnaise
50g pork
1/2 onion
1/8 white cabbage
1/4 green pepper
1 small carrot
aonori powdered seaweed
pickled shredded ginger
dried bonito flakes (optional)

How To Prepare

  1. Begin by cutting the pork into small slices. Cut the carrots and pepper into thin slices and roughly chop the onion and cabbage.

  2. Stir fry the pork until browned, then add the other vegetables except for the cabbage and cook until tender.

  3. Add the cabbage after the other vegetables are ready.

  4. Add the noodles to the pan, then mix together while adding the yakisoba sauce.

  5. Once it is ready, sprinkle over aonori (powdered seaweed) and top with shredded pickled ginger. For extra flavour you can add dried bonito flakes and mayonnaise.
