Yakiudon with Savory Sauce Recipe – Japanese Cooking 101


Yakiudon (焼きうどん) is a dish of stir-fried Udon noodles with meat and vegetables. It’s so easy and quick to make that it’s more akin to home cooking than restaurant fare. Typically, Yakiudon is seasoned with soy sauce or salt, but in this recipe, it’s flavored mainly with savory Tonkatsu sauce, giving it a taste similar to Yakisoba. It’s perfect for lunch or as a great alternative to a fast-food dinner.

Apart from the sauce, the ingredients are very flexible, allowing you to use whatever meat and vegetables you already have in the fridge. It’s easy to make, healthy, and delicious, especially if you keep ready-to-use frozen Udon in the freezer. Plus, it’s great for your budget too! Give it a try!
