Yakisoba 焼きそば

Does this noodle dish looks familiar to you?? It resembles Chinese Fried Noodles (炒面), but the taste is actually quite different 'cos of the sauce used :D Chinese Fried Noodles is more on the salty side which uses more light soy sauce whereas Yakisoba sauce is on the sweeter side :D Another fuss free one dish meal which the kids enjoy alot.

  • 5 fresh shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 2 stalk spring onion, sliced
  • 4 cabbage leaves, chopped into small pieces
  • 250gm chicken fillet, thinly sliced (marinate lightly with pepper, salt, light soy sauce & cornflour)
  • black pepper to taste
  • 300gm dried buckwheat noodle
  • Yakisoba sauce * 
  • Ao-Nori for garnishing
*Yakisoba Sauce : 6 tbsp oyster sauce, 2 tsp light soy sauce, 2 tsp sugar, 2 tsp sesame oil, salt   & black pepper to taste. Whisk together and adjust taste if necessary.

Hi Hi, we prepare the same dish but slightly different ingredients only. I can't get buckwheat soba...I only able to get instant buckwheat ramen only from the organic shop.
