This spicy yaki udon is an easy dish and one that you are going to need to keep in the rotation on the reg. Pick your favorite vegetable and your favorite meat and toss it in here. Leftover meat? Perfect.

This might be my favorite quick and easy dinner of ALL my quick and easy dinners. Plus, this sauce. We eat this sauce on grilled chicken wings too, and I need all the excuses to slather it on more things.

Where can I get udon noodles?

These udon noodles are the perfect match for this amazing sauce because they absorb so much of it, they are filled with flavor – and some spice, so beware. It was a bit much for my toddlers!

I get my udon at Costco in a kit called Teriyaki Stir-Fry Udon, but you can find it all over. I recommend getting fresh refrigerated udon if possible though. Either way, you get it, prepare according to package directions.

What kind of meat can I use in this?

This dish is particularly easy because you can use any meat you have laying around. I used leftover pork chops in this one, but I’d also use chicken, shrimp, or beef as well. Anything you have would be a great addition to this dish.

The same goes for the vegetables. Green beans were fantastic, but if I’d have had some broccoli, red peppers, or carrots laying around? These pictures would look a lot different.

Is this authentic Asian cuisine?

This is definitely not the most authentic thing you’ll ever eat, but dannnnnggggg does it taste good. I’m not a stickler for authenticity when it comes to the food I cook. I take influences from all over the world, and all of my cooking is a kind of fusion, I think. 

I don’t care if it is a chain restaurant, a hole in the wall, or if your recipe has ketchup or cool whip in it. If it is good, I’ll eat it.

If you are with me on that front, we’re halfway to friends already, and I’d really love it if you’d try this dish and let me know what you think!

This recipe is gross. So salty you can’t eat it. The soya sauce should be a tablespoon or two
