  • 2 packets udon noodles - total 13 oz vacuum packed noodles
  • cups mushrooms sliced
  • 3 bok choy quartered or halved
  • white onion chopped
  • 2 stalks scallions
  • ½ lb ground meat beef, chicken, turkey, pork
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil

Yaki Udon Noodle Sauce


  • Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and set aside.

Cook the Udon Noodles

  • Remove your udon noodles from its package and add it to a pot of boiling water. Frozen udon noodles can be added directly to the pot of boiling water. Stir gently until your udon noodles are separated and pliable. This should take 1 - 2 minutes. They come precooked so avoid overcooking them as they can get too soft.
  • Rinse and drain your noodles under cold water. If not using right away, drizzle on a little bit of oil to keep them from sticking.

Stir Fry

  • Heat your pan over high heat and add the oil. Add in the ground meat and stir fry for 1 minute before adding the rest of your vegetables. Stir fry together for 1 minute and then add in the noodles and sauce. Continue stir frying for 3 - 4 minutes or until well combined. Serve immediately.
