Yakisoba is a common street food in Japan which is literally, fried noodles. You can literally see this cooked on gigantic cast iron griddles. The smell of yakisoba would probably remind you of this sweet and tart fragrance that is derived from chuno sauce. This sauce is a condiment poured from tonkatsu to salads and is used in various Japanese cuisine like hamburger steak or Japanese curry. Chuno sauce itself is rather flavorful as it is sweet, tangy, savory and spicy.
10 ounces ramen
2 tsp vegetable oil
5 ounces carrots
2 ounces onion
2 ounces cabbage, shredded
1 ounce scallions
3 tbsp chuno sauce
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
Boil the noodles for about 1 minutes lesser than what the package directions tell you. When the noodles are done, drain and rinse well with cold water, using your fingers to agitate the noodles.
Drain off as much water as possible.
Toss the noodles with 2 tsp of oil to avoid them from sticking.
Prep the vegetables and make the sauce by whisking the chuno sauce, oyster sauce and white pepper.
Heat a pan over medium-high heat until hot and then add 2 tsp oil to stir fry carrots, onions and cabbage stem.
Stir fry until carrots are tender and add the remaining cabbage and scallions.
Continue to stir fry until cabbage is cooked.
Add the noodles and sauce and stir fry the noodles to coat them well with the sauce. Continue tossing until the noodles are uniform in color and you can smell the sauce beginning to caramelize.
Plate the yakisoba and sprinkle the Furikake to garnish.
