Short on cash after Christmas and looking to be a bit more frugal with food?
Enter Yakisoba. There’s everything you could want in this dish, and it’s inexpensive enough that you can have it approximately every single day!
For the ingredients: This dish comes together fast, and it’s important that’s nothing is overcooked so prep for everything is done ahead of time. That includes cooking the noodles. So almost everything here is prepped with the exception of the Green Giant broccoli florets – they steam in the microwave real quick.
We’re adding in the veggie power of fresh cabbage and carrots. There’s some chicken, grated ginger, a sauce made of a few different things, and ramen noodles that we’ve cooked, shocked in cold water, and tossed with some oil. Now that everything’s ready, let’s get started.
The Green Giant Broccoli florets go into the microwave to steam for 5 minutes. While they cook we’re going to heat up a skillet and add some vegetable oil. Canola or any other high heat oil would work in this situation too. Once the oil is hot we add the ginger and cook for a minute, then it’s time to cook the chicken.
Once the chicken’s cooked, the cabbage and carrot get tossed in and quickly cooked (like one minute, tops).
After that, the sauce, noodles, and broccoli gets tossed in and heated through. This step is without a picture because I am that person that tries to be careful when tossing stir-fry and ends up with a stir-fry explosion outside of the pan.
Once the Yakisoba is heated through, serve it up! Some sliced green onions add a little more flavor and black sesame seeds add a little crunch and flair. And food flair is a thing.
