One-Pot beef yakisoba with broccoli and bok choy Fast2eat

One-Pot beef yakisoba with broccoli and bok choy Fast2eat

Yakisoba is a popular Japanese noodle dish served either as a main dish or a side dish. The noodles are stir-fried with meat and vegetables.

Although Yakisoba includes “soba” in its name, the dish can use either ramen-style wheat noodles (also called “Chinese noodles”) or traditional buckwheat noodles (soba noodles). And, while Japanese and Chinese noodles are traditional to use, you could even use spaghetti or linguini noodles if that’s what you have on hand!

The dish is incredibly versatile, and you will find many versions using different meats and vegetables. It comes together incredibly quickly, making it a perfect weeknight meal for using up whatever meat and vegetables you have on hand. You can even change up the sauce depending on your family’s taste.

Yakisoba is very similar to Chinese Chow Mein. Both dishes feature stir-fried noodles. However, Chinese chow mein uses wheat noodles that are often fried crisp or nearly crisp before being mixed with the stir-fried vegetables.

Noodles, beef, sweet and savoury sauce and tons of veggies make this dish hearty and healthy!

Yakisoba is a Japanese noodle dish that literally translates to grilled (yaki) noodles (soba). It is incredibly versatile, making it a perfect weeknight meal for using up whatever meat and vegetables you have on hand. Once the vegetables and meat have cooked and the cooked noodles have been added and sauteed briefly, a sweet and slightly salty sauce is added to the pan. It’s that simple.

Instructions

Have all your ingredients prepped before you begin

  • Assembling and preparing all the ingredients in advance is key when cooking Asian cuisine. Once you have all your components washed, peeled, chopped, trimmed, mixed, and sliced, you are ready to heat your pan and get cooking because dinner is now only moments away.

Wash and slice vegetables

  • Prepare the bok choy by washing it thoroughly and chopping it into bite-sized pieces (including the green tops).
  • Prepare the broccoli by separating it into florets and cutting it into bite-sized pieces.
  • Peel the carrots and line them up to cut them into slices.
  • Peel and slice the onions.
  • Place the prepared veggies into bowls and set them aside while preparing the sauce and beef.

Prepare sauce

  • In a small bowl, mix water and cornstarch, then combine all sauce ingredients, whisking together. Set aside.

Slice the meat

  • Slice the beef, across the grain, into thin slices for quick cooking. Diced meat will take a little longer to cook than slices. Set aside.

Cook the noodles

  • Cook to al dente in boiling water according to your packaged instructions. Drain and set aside.

Finish the dish

  • Heat oil in a wok or large skillet.
  • Add the onions and garlic. Sauté over medium-high heat until bright and starting to soften.
  • Add the meat, and continue to sauté until it is heated through.
  • Add the carrots stirring frequently.
  • Stir in the bok choy and continue to cook.
  • Add the broccoli florets.
  • Stir fry all vegetables until tender.
  • Add the drained noodles and sauté until heated through.
  • Finally, add the sauce to the mixture in the wok, tossing to coat completely.
  • Mix well to combine and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened.
  • Taste the noodles and add the seasonings to suit your taste.

Garnish

  • Garnish to suit your taste with green onion (or chives), Parsley and or sesame seeds for crunch.

Notes

The options here are limitless!
Feel free to add or swap vegetables as desired. You can add other vegetables such as:
  • Asparagus
  • Eggplant
  • Zucchini (green or yellow)
  • Peas
  • Snap Peas
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Water chestnuts
  • Bell peppers
  • String Beans
  • Bok Choy
  • Chinese Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Baby corns
  • Yellow squash
  • Green cabbage
  • Mushrooms
If making vegetable swaps, please remember that softer vegetables like mushrooms and pea pods will take less time to cook than firmer vegetables like carrots.
Remember to cut up your veggies about all the same size if possible so that they all cook evenly as well. You'll want the veggies to be tender yet crisp and not mushy. Like broccoli and cauliflower, some veggies take longer to cook, so you might want to give those a 1-2 minute head start cooking before adding the other veggies.
You can add other meats such as:
  • Chicken
  • Shrimp
  • Pork
  • Turkey
  • Tofu
The mixture of cornstarch and water is the thickening agent. Be sure to add this mixture right at the end, and simmer the sauce for at least 20 seconds after adding it. This ensures that you cook the cornstarch mixture thoroughly and that the sauce has enough time to thicken.
As a replacement for the rice wine vinegar, lime juice can be used if needed.
