How to make tasty, filling and fun "yakisoba pan". A fluffy and light hot dog bun filled with delicious Japanese style fried noodles.


Yakisoba Sauce

Yakisoba Pan

  • 1/2 tbsp Oil (vegetable or sunflower)
  • 100g (3.5oz) Fresh Chinese style wheat noodles (if using dry noodles 50g/2oz - boil them first)
  • 60g (2oz) Pork Belly thinly sliced (see note)
  • 1 pinch Salt and pepper
  • 1/8 White onion sliced
  • 2-3 Hot dog buns
  • Butter
  • Pickled ginger (optional)
  • Aonori (optional)
  • Mayonnaise (optional)


  1. First, make the sauce. Add 1/2 tsp oyster sauce, 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp ketchup, 1 tsp sake, 1/4 tsp sugar, a pinch of black pepper and 1/2 tsp sesame oil to a small bowl. Mix well and set aside for later.

  13. Enjoy!

If you can't find thinly sliced pork belly, you can use unsmoked bacon instead. 2-3 slices should be enough for this recipe. 

You can add more vegetables if you plan to eat it straight away. Cook all vegetables after the pork, with the firmest first (e.g. carrots) and the softest last (e.g. beansprouts). Don't add the noodles back to the pan until the vegetables are cooked through.

Be aware that adding extra ingredients will make the yakisoba more bulky and you might need extra hot dog buns.

If you're serving yakisoba pan in a lunchbox or saving it for later, I don't recommend adding extra vegetables. 

Wrap yakisoba pan in clingfilm for later and eat within a few hours.
