Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 4 teaspoons ketchup
  • 4 teaspoons oyster sauce
  • 4 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder Rodelle
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 9 ounce package of dry Japanese noodles (udon, soba, somen, or ramen) cooked according to package
  • 8 ounces of cabbage sliced into 2x1 inch pieces (approximately 4 cups)
  • 2 carrots sliced (approximately 1 cup)
  • 4 ounces mushrooms sliced (approximately 1.5 cups)
  • 2 shallots or 1/2 sweet onion sliced (approximately 1 cup)
  • 2 scallions chop whites into 1 inch pieces, chop greens into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. Combine the sauce ingredients (worcestershire sauce, ketchup, oyster sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, garlic powder, ginger powder, and paprika) and whisk, set aside.
  2. Boil water in a medium sized (4 qt) pot and cook the dry udon according to package. Drain in a colander, rinse with cold water, and set aside. If the noodles are stuck together when you are ready to add them to the vegetable stir fry, rinse and drain again.
  3. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan at medium heat for a few minutes until a sprinkle of water on the pan sizzles. Add oil and swirl to coat.
  4. Add the cabbage, mushroom, carrots, shallot, and scallion whites and stir fry until they start to brown slightly (about 4 minutes).
  5. Add the cooked noodles and drizzle the sauce over the noodles and vegetables and stir to toss the noodles and vegetables in the sauce until everything is evenly cooked. Garnish with the remaining scallions and serve.
