Make this popular Japanese street food at home in under 30 minutes!
So I had to look up what exactly yakisoba was and found out it translates to grilled noodles and is a really popular street food in Japan. Yakisoba can use either soba noodles or ramen noodles. This recipe features ramen, which if you've been around for a while, you may notice has been getting loads of love lately. I kind of blame it on the garlic butter ramen we had recently. I crave ramen all the time now! I definitely prefer jazzing up a packet of ramen noodles instead of just making it per instructions. This is a fabulous stir fry with lots of veggies and lots of flavor. You can adjust the sriracha to give more of a kick if you prefer or a little more sugar if you prefer it a little sweeter. I highly recommend this quick meal if you're craving a little Asian cuisine!
What you need:
- 1/2 head green cabbage, cut into thin strips
- 1 medium yellow onion, cut into thin strips
- 2 carrots, grated
- 1 small crown broccoli, cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
- 2 chicken breasts, cut into strips
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 2 pkg. (3 oz. each) ramen noodles
- 1 tsp. vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
- 2 Tbsp. ketchup
- 1 Tbsp. sriracha
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- Heat 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add grated ginger and cook, while stirring, for about 30 seconds.
- Then add chicken and cook until no longer pink.
- Add vegetables and cook until wilted, about 5 to 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, discard ramen seasoning packets and cook ramen according to package directions. Drain and toss with 1 tsp. vegetable oil to keep from sticking.
- In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, ketchup, sriracha, and sugar until sugar has dissolved.
- Add sauce to skillet with chicken and noodles. Stir to coat everything and heat through.
If you're okay with spending a little more time on your dinner, this Slow Cooker Caramelized Pork and Ramen Soup is outstanding. I mean, you definitely have to try it if you're a ramen aficionado. I make a ton of chicken and pork ramen, but this Slow Cooker Beef Ramen from Let's Dish is definitely on my to-make-soon list because WOW! Look at all that green!
