Top Rated Yakisoba Recipes

Evan Sung
The most popular person at any Japanese street festival is the yakisoba guy. Standing at a small cart with a hot griddle, he wears a twisted hair band and holds two giant spatulas, one in each hand. With great energy and fanfare he stir- fries a heap of vegetables and pork with chukasoba noodles— the yellow, springy Chinese-style wheat noodles more commonly known as ramen. He finishes with a glug of the special bottled sauce that tastes like a spicier version of tonkatsu sauce, and customers walk toward him like zombies.At home, however, the dish is best cooked one portion at a time. At Japanese grocery stores, chukasoba are sold in the refrigerated section in bags with sauce packets, and labeled “yakisoba.” I typically ignore the packets and instead use the tastier Otafuku brand yakisoba sauce. Why don’t I make my own? Well, then the stir-fry would be a chore (you wouldn’t make your own ketchup for a burger, would you?) rather than a quick lunch or perfect late- night snack.Recipe excerpted with permission from Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking by Masaharu Morimoto.

This is a delicious comfort food, though it is definitely not traditional. The tonkatsu sauce is also good with fried chicken (especially chicken katsu) and fries. I also use it in my yakisoba. Hold the meat, and you have a delicious side dish. If you want to make it vegetarian, use a vegetarian Worcestershire sauce. This is also good with extra-firm tofu.

Soba noodles are a Japanese noodle made with buckwheat flour; if your supermarket doesn't have them in the international foods aisle, try an Asian market. This is not a strictly authentic yakisoba, but it's awfully good!

This is a dish that is popular in Japan and usually sold as street food. This version is made with pork, although you could easily substitute chicken or tofu.

A Japanese dish taught to my aunt and adapted by me. A cheap, easy dish that feeds many and is very filling. You can create this with any meat/ramen combination really. Also, if you want less meat you can use a half pound of each meat.

This is a copycat of the Benihana Yakisoba served at the restaurants.

This is more or less as authentic a yakisoba dish that I can come up with such as what I used to order in Japan. It is delicious with the sauce I am posting but there are a couple of bottled brands that are very good. Some of the Japanese bottled fruit sauces are also great substitutes.

Well if you want something fairly quick to put together and is loaded with flavor, this is it. The Thai red curry paste adds such a wonderful flavor. It's pretty spicy, so don't make this is you don't like spicy. You can use less curry paste too, but it was perfect for us. The original recipe is from Allrecipes, posted by E. Maxwell using chili paste, but we prefer the Thai red curry paste instead. Hope you enjoy.

A yummy vegetarian version of this traditional Japanese dish (from elliemay.com). *The toasted sesame seeds are optional but very yummy.
