AFF Japan - Yakisoba

A simple dish and very easy to enjoy. I love it. The whole family does, too. I can't be happier :)

Recipe is from HERE

What you need:
(with some modification to suit my preference)

5 large shitake mushrooms (or 8 medium)
1/2 onion
1 medium carrot
2 spring onions
5 cabbage leaves
200g chicken breast meat
2 tbsp oil
ground black pepper
8 tbsp homemade yakisoba sauce (***see note below for the recipe)
1 package (of 3) yakisoba noodles
Topping: dried green seaweed powder (aonori)

  1. First, quickly run hot water over the noodles if they are stuck together from the package (mine was not so I skipped this step)
  2. Cut meat into 1 inch cubes. Cut mushrooms as you prefer (I cut into 3 or 4 depending on the size). Julienne onion and carrot. Cut spring onions into 3cm strips. Chop cabbage leaves into pieces
  3. Heat oil in the frying pan (medium high heat). Add in chicken and cook til change color and no longer pink
  4. Add in onion, stir and cook for 30 secs. Add in carrots and continue to cook til soft
  5. Add in mushrooms, stir well and cook for 30 secs. Add in cabbage, stir well and cook til soft
  6. Add black pepper and 3 tbsp of yakisoba sauce, mix well
  7. Lower heat to medium. Add in noodle and separate each other with wooden spoon or chopsticks. Keep stirring and make sure not to burn the bottom of the pan
  8. Add more yakisoba sauce, adjust the amount of sauce according to your preference. Mix all together using a tong (I used 8 tbsp as instructed)
  9. Serve on a plate and garnish with dried seaweed powder. Serve immediately

***Homemade yakisoba sauce:
(makes 9 tbsp) from HERE

9 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tsp soya sauce
3 tsp sugar
3 tsp sesame oil
3 pinches of salt
ground black pepper

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Adjust the sauce according to your liking (I didn't do any adjustment as I find the taste is good enough)
