Japanese Yakisoba

A while ago, when I taught my friend to make macarons, she taught me how to make Japanese Fried Noodles, or Yakisoba.  These are so good and satisfying; full of veggies and such great flavor.  You can use whatever veggies you want; cabbage, carrot, onion, sweet bell peppers, etc.  You can use pork or chicken.  You can also make a big batch of this, and it's a perfect dish to bring to a potluck.  The recipe below is per person, so adjust to how many people you will be feeding.  (PS: My friend uses spaghetti noodles here because they're widely available.)
Japanese Yakisoba
from my friend H.S.

Per Person:
Noodles: 120 grams
Onions (sliced): 30 grams
Cabbage (sliced): 30 grams
Carrot (julienne): 10 grams
Garlic (minced): 1 clove
(Other veggies if desired- sliced bell peppers, zucchini, etc.)
Meat (Thin-sliced Chicken or Pork): 65 grams
oil for cooking veggies
sliced green onions for garnish, optional
Sriracha sauce or other chili sauce, for serving, optional

Oyster Sauce: 1 1/2 Tablespoons
Soy Sauce: 1/2 teaspoon
Salt: pinch, or to taste (or omit)
Sugar: 1/2 teaspoon
Black Pepper: to taste
Sesame Oil: 2 drops

1.  Boil noodles according to package directions & drain.  In the meantime, in a bowl, mix sauce ingredients.

2.  While noodles are boiling,  in a large skillet or wok, heat a bit of oil.  Cook veggies until almost tender, and then add sauce and boiled, drained noodles and heat through until veggies are cooked to your liking and everything is heated through.  Serve with Sriracha sauce or other chili sauce, and sliced green onions, if desired.

If I hadn't already made a big pot of soup for dinner with Taylor tomorrow I would be making this. It looks wonderful!
