Stir-fried udon



I've been meaning to post another stir-fried noodles for weeks now ....

You can never have too many noodle posts , right ?

Since , I don't really like udon with soup , stir frying it makes perfect sense .

This simple and easy dish is great when you don't have time to whip something fuzzy but still want a hearty and filling meal .

Serves 2

2 pack udon noodles
100 grams pork tenderloin , cut into bite size pieces
a portion each of red , yellow and green bell pepper or 1 large bell pepper , sliced
1/2 of a small onion , sliced
1 teaspoon chilli sauce
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 clove garlic , minced
1 tsp ginger , finely chopped
1/2 tsp chicken powder

lime wedges to serve

For the sauce : Mix 4 tablespoons water , 1 tsp dark soy sauce , 1/2 tsp brown sugar .

* Marinate pork with 1/8 tsp dark soy , a pinch of salt , a dash of ground white pepper , few drops of sesame oil and 1/2 tsp tapioca or cornstarch for 20 minutes .

* Heat wok and pour some oil , when the oil is hot , add in the pork , stir fry until it changes color then add in the onion , garlic and ginger , cook for 2 minutes . Add in the bell peppers , season with chicken powder and brown sugar ; cook for a minute then transfer to a plate . Set aside .

* In the same pan , add in the noodles , cook for 4 minutes , stirring constantly to prevent from sticking at the bottom of the pan . Add in the pork and bell pepper mixture , stir well to combine then pour in the sauce , stir and adjust seasoning . Continue cooking until the sauce is absorbed . Dish up and serve hot

  4. That Asian character in me is awakened after seeing this flavorful udon. I seldom use udon because for us its more of egg and rice noodles. That said, its nice to try new recipes with new ingredients. Looks so mouth watering. Thanks for the great friendship too.

  6. Hi Anne,
    Just like you, I prefer udon stir-fried rather than soup! This looks delicious! I have always had udon in black pepper stir-fried, should try other flavours, just like yours! Looks delish and I would have no problem finishing the whole plate!
