Yakisoba is a classic Japanese stir fry noodles dish with meat and vegetables, and it's seasoned with a sweet & savory sauce similar to Worcestershire sauce.
3 shiitake mushrooms
2 green onions/scallions
4 cabbage leaves
¾ lb sliced pork belly (or your choice of meat/seafood/mushrooms/veggies) *bacan is lovely
2 Tbsp neutral-flavored oil (vegetable, canola, etc)
freshly ground black pepper
200g w0w noodles (get it here: https://www.w0wnoodle.com/product)
4-6 Tbsp yakisoba sauce (purchase it / follow recipe below)
Yakisoba Sauce (Makes ½ cup, 120 ml)
4 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (Japanese brand "Bulldog" Worcestershire sauce (Usuta-so-su, ウスターソース) is milder and less sour than Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce. If you use non-Japanese brand, add more sugar)
4 tsp oyster sauce (if you're allergic to shellfish, or if you're vegetarian, use LEE KUM KEE Vegetarian Stir-Fry Sauce)
4 tsp ketchup
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar (add more sugar, if needed)
To Make Yakisoba Sauce (you can purchase this)
Whisk all the ingredients for Yakisoba sauce. It's important to taste the sauce and see if you need to add more sugar. For example, some ketchup is sweeter than others while some Worcestershire sauce is less sour than others. Set it aside.
To Make Yakisoba
