Yakisoba is a very popular noodles in Japan, but you can have a taste of it right in your own home through this recipe that I am going to share. It may not be as perfect as the Japanese way but I am sure this is yummy. I had a first taste of it at a Chinatown restaurant somewhere in South America, as I am eating it, I looked at what are the ingredients, and I said to my friends, wow the price is expensive but the ingredients are just these, if we can find a yakisoba noodles, then I can cook it for us if we want to eat yakisoba again, in that way it's less expensive.
Ingredients:1/4 kiloYakisoba noodles
5 crab sticks ( you can replace this with a meat that you want to use)
1small size onion
4 cloves garlic
1/4 kilo Chinese cabbage
1/4 cup button mushrooms (halves)
1 pc. carrot ( strips)
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 glass water
1 small bell pepper
1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in a little water.
Procedure:1. Boil the Yakisoba noodles, when its cooked drain it and set aside.
2. In a pan saute garlic and onion
3.Add the soy sauce, sugar, crab sticks (or any meat that you are going to use) simmer it for 2 minutes
4.Add the water, let it boil

7. add the cornstarch solution let it boil
8. Stir in the Yakisoba noodles, mix it well and turn off the heat.You can dash it with ground pepper.

If you will use a ready to use Yakisoba noodles sauce, no need to put water, sugar and cornstarch solution just stir fry the vegetables.
If Yakisoba noodles is not available in your place, you can use the instant noodles. DO not include its flavoring.
