Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a small bowl combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and black pepper. Set aside.
  • Remove Yaki Soba from packages and discard included flavoring packets. Rinse noodles well, drain, and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large wok or skillet.  
  • Add celery and onion and saute for about 1-2 minutes or until onions start to become soft and transparent.
  • Add cabbage and saute an additional minute or so.
  • Toss Yaki Soba noodles and soy sauce mixture with the vegetables over medium-high heat for an additional 2-3 minutes or until noodles are heated through.

Notes

*In this recipe you can add a shake or two of sesame oil to the vegetable oil to add a deeper flavor, but don't overdo it! I am not including it in the recipe because the sesame oil flavoring can become overpowering real quick if you aren't careful. I have made it both ways (with and without sesame oil) and they both taste great.
