Udon noodles are the best.

They're so fun to eat and their thickness really helps to hold onto all that yummy sauce. They also make for the easiest dinners, and are a great way of using up whatever veggies you have in the fridge.

This stir fry was easy to make. We used OKAZU, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger for the stir fry sauce and added some bok choy and mushrooms to the noodles. So quick and tasty! 

Full recipe below.

Servings: 4
Cook time: 30 minutes


- 2 packages of udon noodles
- 2 tbsp. cooking oil
- 1 tbsp. Chili OKAZU 
- 1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce
- 1.5 tbsp. oyster sauce
- 1-2 tsp. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. garlic
- 1-2 tbsp. ginger
-1/2 medium onion 
- 3-4 baby bok choys, halved
- 1 cup mushrooms, sliced 
- sesame seeds (garnish)



1. Prepare the udon noodles according to the package.

2. In a small bowl, combine the OKAZU, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger to make the sauce.

3. In a pan, add the oil and allow to heat up. Once hot, add the onions and saute on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. Afterwards, add the mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes. Add the bok choy to the pan and saute until the leaves start to wither. Add 1/2 of the sauce to the pan and mix well making sure to coat all the vegetables, and saute for another 2 minutes to thicken the sauce.

4. Add the udon noodles to the pan along with the remaining sauce and mix for about 2-3 minutes on the heat. Remove from the stove once the noodles are fully covered in the sauce, and garnish with the sesame seeds.

I make about 200 dumplings at a time and freeze them. It is a bit of a production to make, but it is so worth it. I'm always excited when I get to eat these, it's not like a sad frozen dinner, and they are so convenient. Try these gyoza with steamed rice and some sauteed bean sprouts, and beer!
