Hello everyone, and welcome to another episode of Martina’s Midnight Munchies, where I share recipes after studying them for a bit, trying out a bunch, and determining what’s the best way to nail the taste in ways that, I hope, you can recreate at home. We just met someone who said they used our eggnog recipe and loved it. I’m hoping I’ll hear one of you tell me how you followed this recipe, shared it with your friends, and they all loved you for it, and then Chris Hemsworth crashed the party and was like “I heard you make dope Yakisoba” and then proposes to you. I’ll be waiting for that story, Joe. Yes you Joe. We met you today. Invite us to your Chris Hemsworth wedding. Hey one thing I never figured out is who takes whose last name in a same sex marriage. Do people go by one last name? I hope that’s not insensitive I just never knew. The two of us keep our original last names, but we do call each other Ducky now. So, that’s related somehow to Yakisoba.
Ok, without further ado, here’s the recipe!
Sauce From Scratch:
1 tsp honey (or sugar of choice)
1 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp ketchup
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (If you use a Japanese brand, cut out the ketchup and add 1 tsp more Worcestershire)
1 tbsp sake or water
2 tsp oyster sauce
Mix all ingredients together well, pour over noodles and veg.
1 packet Yakisoba powder
2 tbsp Japanese Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Oyster sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
5 tbsp water
Mix together well. You might prefer to boil this sauce for a wee bit in a saucepan before adding to the noodles if you want a thicker sauce.
Noodles + Veg + Meat (chop to bite sized pieces)
1 pack of Yakisoba noodles (or dried ramen noodles, undercooked in hot water before adding to the pan)
1 clove of diced garlic
1/4 green cabbage
1 large green onion or 3 small green onions
1/4-1/2 bean sprouts (no chopping required)
100g of thinly sliced pork (or fried tofu, but fry it separately and add at the very end)
1 grilled egg
-Pickled Red Ginger (Beni Shoga 紅生姜)
-aonori (powdered green seaweed)
1. Fry the pork and garlic on medium heat, remove just before the pork is cooked.
2. Using the pork oil, add the yakisoba noodles into the pan and push them down with a spatula to get some crisp. Flip over and repeat.
3. Add the veggies and meat back into the pan with the noodles, and slowly loosen up the noodles from their square form as you go with your cooking utensil.
4. Fry an egg sunny side up, don’t worry about over cooking because you’ll rely on the heat of the noodles to cook it the rest of the way.
5. Put the noodles on a plate, add the egg, and mix it all up. Optional additions, sprinkle bonito flakes, and aonori (powdered green seaweed) and a thin drizzle of high quality mayonnaise (made from egg).
So that’s it for the recipe! Enjoy it, and marry you some of them Marvel actors! Also, auick apologies for being delayed with this week’s video, as we usually publish on Sunday/Monday. We had a bit of a tough week, and so we fell behind. Hopefully we can catch up again and get back to it! We’ve planned many videos, and are working on shooting those ASAP! For now, here are some bloopers for this week’s video:
