    Yaki Udon

    Udon is a thick wheat flour noodle in Japan. It is most often found in various soups but is also served in stir fries.

    This recipe comes from https://www.justonecookbook.com/yaki-udon/


    You can cook a wide array of Japanese dishes by keeping a small panty of items. The emphasis of Japanese cooking is fresh, seasonal ingredients. Home kitchens are small and so are the refrigerators. Small amounts of meats, fish, and veggies are purchased several times a week, the bulk of the ingredients are dried or otherwise shelf stable. Dried herbs and spices are uncommon.

    I hope some of you will try this at home, it is so satisfying and very easy.

    That is a very good recipe. I especially liked her commentary on noodle sourcing. I would make one small amendment to her advice on using dry Udon noodles though. She said to cook them according to the package instructions. I used dry noodles for the Santa Maria/wok experiment I posted the other day. The package instructions called for 5-6 minutes of boil time. We cut that down to 4 minutes because when you go to the stir fry portion they will continue to soften (taking on more moisture from the sauce) in the wok. A small thing, but I believe it helps maintain the texture of the noodle better.

      Good point on noodle texture. I finally sourced Sanuki Udon at the Lotte Market that opened up in Orlando. We make a monthly trip and stock up on it and other staples. They have a large selection of fresh noodles also and too many types of dried noodles to count.
      The have a great selection and prices on Berkshire pork and Wagyu beef that is untouchable in Central Florida. I've started using using more pork belly as a result.

      JOC has many good pork belly recipes.

      Sounds good. But there are no small "pant[ies]" in this house, I'm afraid. 🤣

        I should never post early in the morning before the coffee kicks in or in the evening when the whiskey has.

        Bkhuna - I would have let it go, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity for a cheap laugh!. 😁
