More About This Recipe
  • Check out this easy weeknight noodle dish. While its name might be new to you and sound exotic, I promise the flavors are familiar. It’s essentially a simple noodle stir-fry dish that’s very popular in Japan. You can use almost any noodle, but traditionally soba (buckwheat) noodles are used—and they are my absolute favorite. The trick to making this dish is to make sure you have all your items prepped before you even turn on the stove. It all cooks really quickly, so if you don’t have everything prepped you’ll miss the boat. For the “soba” part of the yakisoba, you’ll need noodles! Like I said, I used actual Japanese soba, which cooks very quickly. If you can’t find these you could use almost any wheat noodle. Cook the noodles according to the package, rinse them well with cold water to stop the cooking, and toss them with one tablespoon of sesame oil to keep them from sticking. One more thing before we start cooking: sauce! Any good stir-fry noodle dish has a great sauce and this one is a perfect mix of savory, sweet, and salty. Serve this up immediately in deep bowls with fresh cilantro. Happy yakisoba eating!
