How to Cook:
Making Yakisoba Sauce: Mix soy sauce, sake, mirin, sugar, oyster sauce and ketchup in a bowl. This will be added at the very end of the process.
Boil 4 cups of water in a pan and add one Top Ramen. Once the noodles become soft, turn the heat to low and leave until the noodle absorbs the water.
Place vegetable oil into a frying pan (or Wok). Heat the oil on medium/high. Cook the meat until there is no pink visible
Add vegetables and stir fry until they become soft.
Add noodles and yakisoba sauce and stir fry until the noodles absorb the sauce.
Enjoy Super Easy Simple Top Ramen Yakisoba !!
I usually buy a chunk of meat on sale and ask the butcher to slice it at the thinnest possible setting. You may also buy sliced meet in an Asian store, but it is often more expensive.
Don't throw the soup stock away. You can use it as a soup stock for variety soups and fried rice seasoning etc...
Off course you can buy Yakisoba source at store. Buy a couple and store in a refrigerator. It lasts quite long time.
