1 large onion (or 2 1/2 smaller onions)
1 pack of thinly sliced beef (or any protein of your choosing)
1/2 of a jumbo carrot
1/2 a pack of shiitake mushrooms
All 3 packs of Nama Yakisoba noodles w/ the seasoning (you can use fav brand of noodles)
1/2 head of cabbage
1/3 cup of water
2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
2 tablespoons Mirin
4 tablespoons Yakisoba Sauce
Salt & Pepper
Cut the carrots, onions, and mushrooms into julienne strips. Cut the beef into smaller pieces. Cut the cabbage into small strips as well. Set the vegetables to the side, but keep the cabbage in a separate bowl.
First, brown the meat in olive oil on medium heat until most of the pink is gone. Season with the salt, pepper, and mirin. Next, add the carrots, mushrooms, and onions; stir fry these for a bit. Finally, add the cabbage into the pot, and add 1/3 cup of water into the pan to steam the cabbage. Cover the pan and leave for ~8 minutes.
After the cabbage has steamed (you can tell because it looses that white-ish look), add the yakisoba noodles on top and slowly break them apart as you mix the ingredients together. Let everything cook for 5 more minutes.
After cooking the noodles together you can add all the seasoning packs that came with the noodles. I found that it wasn't enough flavoring so it was okay to add the yakisoba sauce that I bought in case. The brand is Otafuku and I really like the taste! Add this into the noodles and turn the fire up. This is where you stir fry everything relatively fast!
After frying everything on medium to high heat, your yakisoba is ready to eat! In this picture, I didn't put katsuobushi flakes or beni shouga, but it still tastes really good! :) Everyone at home loved it; I ended up making it for dinner again the next day haha~!
If you want an actual video of yakisoba being made, I highly recommend watching Ochikeron's yakisoba video! I love her channel, and she has a lot of uploads for popular Japanese dishes! More posts coming soon~
