My favorite yaki udon recipe takes less than 10 minutes to make! The udon noodles are stir fried in a mixture of butter and dashi powder and topped with bonito flakes and fresh scallions. It’s absolutely delicious!
Udon (うどん) is a thick noodle made from wheat flour. Frequently seen in Japanese soups – or served alongside dishes like tempura – these noodles are typically quite chewy and much thicker than other Japanese noodles like ramen and soba.
Cook the udon noodles and set aside.
Add the butter, dashi powder, and water. Stir until the butter has melted.
Toss the noodles in mixture until fully coated. Stir in soy sauce.
Transfer to a bowl and serve with bonito flakes, scallion and nori.
