After trying the magnificence that is Yaki Udon at Roe, I decided to try DIYing it. As with any DIY I went to Youtube to get a general idea of what to do. This recipe is based on the general idea I gathered from Youtube, slightly modified with the addition of scotch bonnet pepper. Hope you find this as delicious as I did!
Sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
Assortment of vegetables eg. Carrot, cabbage, sweet pepper
onion and garlic
scotch bonnet pepper
Step 1: Chop Ingredients
Thinly slice the beef and marinate it in a bowl with salt, pepper, soya sauce and scotch bonnet. While it marinates, chop the vegetables. Cut the carrot into thin strips, roughly chop the cabbage and slice the sweet pepper.
Step 2: Prepare the Udon
Prepare the udon noodles according to the package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water when done. While the udon noodles are boiling, start sauteeing the onions and garlic in oil. After they have gone limp, add the steak and cook on high heat. Then add the vegetables and mix. Add the udon noodles to the pan and mix well.
Step 3: Add the Soya Sauce
After everything has been totally combined, add the soya sauce and mix til combined. Turn off the heat and serve immediately, garnishing with thinly sliced scallions if desired.
I can safely say this is a pretty good dupe for the yaki udon from Roe. Unfortunately, my noodles got a little bit overcooked and then were chopped up during the mixing process because they sat for a little too long. To avoid this, cook them right before you need to stir them in, because they literally cook in five minutes. Also: use a deep pan to cook everything in, don’t be like me using a shallow pan and having to switch pans halfway through. Go forth and make deliciousness!
