5 from 1 review

A traditional style yakisoba recipe you can whip up at home in 15 minutes. It’s so yummy!


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, julienned (sliced into small sticks)
  • 1 cup green cabbage, chopped
  • 45 shiitake or button mushrooms, sliced
  • 9 large shrimps, thawed, peeled and deveined
  • 1 package yakisoba noodles (3 single servings included)


  1. In a wok or large pan over medium high heat, add oil then onions, cabbage and carrot and cook for 2-3 minutes, until onions are translucent.
  2. Push the vegetables to one side of the wok and add shrimp and mushrooms to the empty side. Cook for 4-5 minutes, until the shrimp are cooked through.
  3. Transfer all the ingredients to a bowl and set aside. 
  4. Using the same wok, add one yakisoba serving and follow the instructions on the package (it usually says to add 1/4 cup water and to loosen the noodles – using chopsticks is the easiest way – for about 30 seconds). Add the seasoning and stir well. 
  5. Add 1/3 of the shrimp and stir fried vegetables mixture to the pan and toss well. 
  6. Transfer to a plate and serve with benishoga (optional). Repeat the same steps for the remaining noodle servings.


You can keep leftovers of this yakisoba recipe refrigerated for 1-2 days.
