Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork belly sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms substitute white or baby bellas
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup cabbage shredded
  • 16 ounces yakisoba noodles
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced green onions for garnish

Yakisoba Sauce:

Instructions

  • Cut the pork belly into 1/2" pieces. Season with the salt and pepper
  • Heat the cooking oil in a wok over high heat.
  • Add the pork belly, in 2 separate batches, and stir fry until crisp around the edges. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Add the mushrooms (keeping the heat on high) and stir fry until they soften and the liquid has evaporated, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the onions and red pepper and stir fry for 1 minute.
  • Add the cabbage and stir fry 1 minute.
  • Add the pork belly and mix in.
  • Add the yakisoba noodles and stir fry until warmed throughout. It's ok if some of the noodles get a little charred; it's adds some extra flavor!
  • Add the yakisoba sauce and toss to combine.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with green onions,

Yakisoba Sauce

  • Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl and set aside for use.

Notes

  1. Cook the pork belly in two batches to ensure it gets nice and crispy around the edges.
  2. Any kind of sliced fresh mushrooms will work in this recipe. Cook them on high until much of the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Use your hands to gently separate the noodles before using them so they don't break apart in the pan. You can also rinse them in water to separate - just be sure they are well drained. 
  4. The noodles only need a quick stir fry - if you overcook them they will become mushy.
  5. Be careful not to overload your yakisoba with too many vegetables. You want the noodles to be the star!
