Yakisoba Recipe (Video)

Yakisoba is a staple at festivals in Japan. Delicious wheat noodles, accompanied by vegetables and bathed in a sauce that gives the dish its name and is cooked until it caramelizes slightly.

How to make yakisoba at home?

To make yakisobas at home you will need:

  • Vermicelli
  • Meat (chicken, beef, pork) or prawns, cuttlefish, tofu…
  • Vegetables, once again you can opt for those that you like the most, onion, carrot, pepper,..
  • Yakisoba sauce, homemade or store-bought.

The noodles.

When we talk about soba, we’re usually referring to those Japanese noodles made with buckwheat. However, historically, the word soba was used to refer to any long, thin noodle. It’s no wonder then, that yakisoba noodles are alkaline noodles made from common wheat flour.

Nowadays it is easy to find them prepared in Japanese and Asian stores, allowing us to make delicious yakisoba noodles at home in less than 15 minutes. Undoubtedly, pre-cooked noodles, even if they are not up to the standard of fresh ones, are so convenient that we always have them in our pantry.


Traditionally, yakisoba contains a protein element and vegetables. The protein is provided, in our case, by pork cut very thin. However, you can also choose to do it with chicken, beef, prawns, cuttlefish,…. Whatever you like the most!


Something similar happens with vegetables. Traditionally, yakisoba will be made with cabbage, carrot, and onion.

However, if you don’t have these at home or you simply want other types of vegetables, you can make them with green peppers, shitake mushrooms, green beans,….

Yakisoba sauce.

Much of the fun of yakisoba noodles is their delicious sauce. You can buy it ready-made, it’s delicious and it’s very practical to have it at home.

Some of you have told me that you don’t have Asian supermarkets near you, so today I’ll tell you how you can prepare it at home, in less than 5 minutes!

Traditionally, yakisoba sauce is made with a plant-based sauce called chūno sōsu. This sauce is very popular and is used for everything from hamburgers to Tonkatsu. Its flavor is similar to Worcestershire sauce, with the Japanese version being sweeter and with a thicker texture.

With this in mind, we can develop our own yakisoba sauce at home, cheap, easy and even, suitable for oyster allergy sufferers using 5 ingredients: Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, oyster sauce (or in case you are allergic to oysters, you can replace it with mushroom sauce), honey and pepper.

Secret to a 10 yakisoba!

If you’ve been to Japan or to restaurants specializing in yakisoba, you’ll know that yakisoba is usually cooked on fairly large steel plates known as teppan.

Thanks to the size of the griddles and how hot they are, the cook can move the ingredients easily and consistently. This allows the ingredients to cook quickly, retaining their color while giving them a slight toasty aroma.

To replicate that scent at home, there’s an easy solution, use a large wrought-iron skillet. On the one hand, its size allows us to move the ingredients easily. On the other hand, as it is made of wrought iron, it maintains heat much better and will prevent the temperature from dropping when the ingredients are added.

But don’t worry, if you don’t have a wrought iron skillet, you can always do it in a large skillet.
