Yakisoba is a Japanese stir fry noodle dish similar to a Chinese chow mein. This is an easy way to bring Japanese flavours into your own kitchen without any hard-to-find ingredients. Quick and easy, this makes a great midweek dish!
Choose a Japanese or even Chinese-style chilli paste for this recipe. If in doubt, simply add chopped fresh red chilli or even chilli flakes.
When looking in larger supermarkets, choose wheat-based straight-to-wok noodles for this recipe, just as you would for a Chinese chow mein. Yakisoba is a Japanese dish that can be traced back to China.
This is excellent. I did cut the chilli paste to 2 large teaspoons instead of tablespoons. I figured I could always add more if needed. One of the best Asian dishes I have made at home. - 07 Feb 2015
This was delicious but WAY too salty and I didn't even add the tablespoon of salt to the vegetables that it called for! Next time I am going to cut the soy sauce in half too. That being said it was REALLY good and I will make it often cutting out the saltiness! - 06 Mar 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
YUM! I am so glad I made this. I cut the chili paste to two large teaspoons instead of Tablespoons - figured that I could add more if needed but it was just perfect for us. I used a 10 oz package of dry yakisoba noodles and it was perfect. I don't really understand the recipe calling for 2 lbs cooked noodles - none the less the 10 oz package was just the right amount. Hubby says I can make this every week. One of the best, if not the best Asian dishes I have ever made. Delicious! - 06 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
